An absolutely excellent read. The novel is less did-he-do-it and more about the judicial system that is in place (not at all boring or procedural), and the challenges a he said/she said legal process presents; how is a jury ever to know what to believe?
The story is told (mainly) from two perspectives the (was she long-suffering?) wife, and the prosecuting barrister with her own agenda. These two sides offer two strong and individual female stance on sexual assault.
Just as I thought it was over, the last few chapters threw more curve balls. An enjoyable and riveting read.
2018 is certainly shaping to be the year for exceptional debut writing!
