About the Book
Max Parkman - autistic and whip-smart, emotionally fragile and aggressive - is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder.

Attorney Danielle Parkman knows her teenage son Max's behavior has been getting worse - using drugs and lashing out. But she can't accept the diagnosis she receives at a top-notch adolescent psychiatric facility that her son is deeply disturbed. Dangerous.

Until she finds Max, unconscious and bloodied, beside a patient who has been brutally stabbed to death.

Trapped in a world of doubt and fear, barred from contacting Max, Danielle clings to the belief that her son is innocent. But has she, too, lost touch with reality? Is her son really a killer?

With the justice system bearing down on them, Danielle steels herself to discover the truth, no matter what it is. She'll do whatever it takes to find the killer and to save her son from being destroyed by a system that's all too eager to convict him.

Loved it!
One down side would be there there were ALOT of wrong words (I was going to put 'spelling errors' but that's not accurate) in this book. It wasn't an ARC or anything, so I was surprised by this.
That said it totally gripped my attention and I devoured it within 6 hours.
Was a great 'time out' from my recent heavy slog reads.

Thanks J4shaw! You were certainly busy while you were in NZ! Hope you also got to go out and about.

This novel had a very good storyline. As J4shaw said, it had a bit of everything and would probably make a fairly good movie. Having said that, the writing itself was awful! Her descriptions of things were just plain laughable (so much spitting bullets at people and eyes either like hot melted tar, or slivers of steely ice - OMG)!
