Publisher's Summary

Jessica Ames is desperate. Her college-age son, Brandon, has been arrested for murder, and the evidence is stacked against him. His DNA matches the blood and skin found under the victim's fingernails, and the murder weapon was recovered near his apartment. Jessica turns to the only lawyer she knows for help.
Nate Daniels is no criminal defense attorney; he's a highly successful corporate litigator. He also has unresolved feelings for Jessica. As her late husband's best friend, Nate takes the case pro bono, knowing he has no choice but to do everything within his power to get Brandon acquitted.
As Nate and Jessica work with the public defender to save her son, the loyalty, faith, and love between them grows into something more - even as their investigation is bringing out some very powerful and dangerous enemies...

Great legal thriller/murder mystery...

This book is really really good. It's another one of those books I found and purchased based on the review by Wayne in NC. I'm often skeptical of the free or $1.99 books on kindle unlimited. It's kind of like any of the pay movie channels, thousands of movies but only a few hidden gems. In my opinion, this is one of those hidden gems hiding in the unlimited library.
This was a very busy book with lots going on. A son in jail for a murder he claims not to have committed and being targeted by a gang over a bag of goldfish crackers, an attorney is sent a bomb in a gift basket of chocolate covered strawberries, human trafficking in "good" neighborhoods and the home of a computer hack's parents invaded by armed men.
I did not have a problem with the narrator and thought James Patrick Cronin did an excellent job.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Solid legal thriller!

This is the third audio book by Rick Acker to which I have listened. Death in the Mind's Eye rated 2 stars. The Enoch Effect was a 5 star legal thriller with with the worst narration imaginable, so I read the ebook. Guilty Blood is an excellent novel with superb narration. Using my Kindle Unlimited account the audio book cost $1.99. I'm happy I gave it a try.
