I don’t know about you, but I hate when I’m reading a mystery and I figure it out halfway into the book. That’s why The Verdict is so great! It kept me guessing and had me racing to the end to learn the truth. Law clerk Terry Flynt has waited his whole life for the opportunity to see his best friend-turned-enemy, Vernon James, go down in flames. And it looks like Vernon is about to fall hard, having been accused of murder. All evidence points to his guilt. But the more Terry looks into the case, the more he believes Vernon didn’t do it. So what does he want more – revenge or justice?
