This is one of my contemporary books by an author that is still alive. I read another of her books and liked it, so when I found this in the bargain bin at Half Price Books, I grabbed it.
She writes legal thrillers. This one tells two stories; one of a boy who is bullied, gets into a fight and ends in jail--the other years later when he gets in a fight with the same man who is later found dead and he is accused of murder.
The two tails are intertwined and a romance complicates things.
A real page turner; once again, from Lisa Scottoline.
