What did you like best about this story?
I totally enjoyed this audio book. I thought I had predicted the ending fairly early on and it turned out that for all my smugness Jacobs had tricked me with a surprising conclusion I never saw coming.

This installment of Witness of the Defense is a nice round up of courtroom procedural, complex relationships, glimmers of romance, and plenty of suspense. Some things are fairly predictable, but there is no easy answer to the ultimate “whodunit,” at least not for me. Author Jonnie Jacobs gives us a first person account of attorney Kali O’Brien’s defense investigation into a murder of an unlikable character. Jacobs does a great job developing a variety of personalities, from angry young adults to bitter mid-lifers. There’s even a sweet newborn, around whom the story evolves. No one character stands out as outrageous or super exceptional, but each of their respective subtle idiosyncrasies works well to hold the story in an engaging light.
Narrator Cindy Pillar has a crisp, articulate voice. She did not differentiate much between male and female characters, which IMHO is a nice to have that would have upped the enjoyment factor. More distracting was the fact that her voice sounds significantly older than the thirty-something main character, Kali O’Brien, as well as other characters.
This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thanks AudioBlast.
