28 Apr Spotlight Tour – Conviction by Jack Jordan
It’s never too early to shout out about a great new book – and this one is going to be massive!
From the master of the moral dilemma and Sunday Times bestselling author of Do No Harm, comes a tense new thriller published by Simon & Schuster.
TO STEAL A MAN’S FREEDOM ALL IT TAKES IS . . . CONVICTION
Wade Darling stands accused of killing his wife and teenage children as they slept before burning the family home to the ground.
When the case lands on barrister Neve Harper’s desk, she knows it could be the career making case she’s been waiting for. But only if she can prove Wade’s innocence.
A matter of days before the case, as Neve is travelling home for the night, she is approached by a man. He tells her she must lose this case or the secret about her own husband’s disappearance will be revealed.
Failing that, he will kill everyone she cares about until she follows orders.
Neve must make a choice – betray every principle she has ever had by putting a potentially innocent man in prison, or risk putting those she loves in mortal danger.
Just reading the summary, I cannot wait to read this book! We’ve all told white lies, we’ve all faced ethical dilemmas – but imagine having to make the decision to sacrifice the moral principles that define you and the career you cherish.
Would I choose to save my own skin? Or would I put my own loved ones in danger to save a stranger? I know I’d roll over – but I am hoping that Neve Harper is made of stronger stuff!
Whatever her decision, her story is going to make an absolutely riveting read.
I’ll be adding my own thoughts to my blog review pages when I’ve read the book.
Praise for Conviction
Really clever and twisty with a propulsive storyline and a great central character in Neve. If you like a legal thriller you’ll love this! Harriet Tyce
Raced through Conviction by the talented Jack Jordan. Tense and fast paced, this is a definite pre-order! Karen Hamilton
No one crafts a dilemma quite like Jack Jordan. Conviction is a tour de force of a legal thriller that will have you guessing at every turn and then gasping when the plot inevitably catches you unawares…and if you’re anything like I was, you’ll be swept away on a thrilling ride that starts from the very first page Janice Hallett
A masterclass in misdirection. Smart, stylish, taut and twisting. Conviction is Jack Jordan’s best yet Chris Whitaker
I loved every minute of this thrilling read. It combines the best of Sarah Vaughan and John Grisham: immersive, visual writing with twist after twist turning the screw tighter with ever page. Take a bow Jack “jeopardy” Jordan Jo Callaghan
