Defending Jacob by William Landay

Defending Jacob is a thriller, mystery, and book about family dynamics. It’s a suspenseful book that really stayed with me and made me think. If you like books by John Grisham, Scott Turow, Michael Connelly, and Jodi Picoult, then give this book a try. The main character Andy Barber is an assistant DA in a wealthy Boston suburb where he lives with his wife Laurie and 14 year old son Jacob. Andy narrates the story which is interspersed with transcripts from a grand jury and covers the period between April 2007 and April 2008.
