Assistant DA, Jenna James took an oath to uphold the law, administer justice, deter crime and ensure the safety of the community. Her job isn’t easy, but it has always been black and white—criminals versus victims. Now she is the victim, and the very system she’s fought to uphold is suddenly corrupt, the lines between good and bad are blurred and her world has turned upside down. She’s always known that world existed—a world of power so immense that a single phone call can result in people disappearing or political offices being vacated, a world where doctors are available at a moment’s notice. She’s never been part of that world—never wanted to be. The body count is rising, and unless she finds proof beyond a reasonable doubt against a corrupt former federal judge, and a notorious criminal defense attorney, it will continue to rise.
Beyond A Reasonable Doubt is a fast paced legal thriller, though if like me your not a big lover of court room saga’s, do not worry as very little of this book is set in the courtroom.
Meet Jenna James an Assistant DA who stands by her oath to serve justice to all criminals and does everything in her power to protect the innocent.
Jenna makes a big mistake getting involved with Michael, unfortunately realising to late, she is dragged into a world of murder, lies and deceit and is put into a very compromising situation, does she stand by her oath she took or does she turn a blind eye in the hope that she can protect her own life.
There are a lot of unsavoury characters in this story and for Jenna she soon realises that some people are not all they seem and who can she really trust. Luckily she has some great friends in Harry and Jake who will do anything to protect their friend. She also has some help from some unlikely allies.
I really enjoyed this book and was gripped through out the story. I’m hoping that this is the first of many following Jenna and her fight in bringing people to justice. A great read that is fast paced and the reader will struggle to put down.
I have awarded this book 5/5 stars.
