Darren DiCinni is a normal, quiet teenager. He reminds me of Dylan Klebold the Columbine killer. Both their looks were deceiving. Darren, a thirteen-year-old has just shot six people to death in cold blood, at a baseball game.
Lindy Field, Darren's ambitious defense attorney doesn't accept a life-without-parole offer. With twists and turns in this story of danger, suspense and corruption we see Lindy fight against public opinion and great odds.
I found myself wondering why Lindy would fight for an insanity plea. I even found myself against her. At the end of the book I didn't wonder any more. Evil comes in many different forms and it is not always as it seems. Lindy had that gut feeling that something wasn't right. She didn't stop until the truth was made known. This was a great book by James Scott Bell.

At first glance, Darren DiCinni is a normal, scrawny teenager - no longer a boy, not yet a man. But looks can be deceiving. This thirteen-year-old has just shot six people to death in cold blood. A slam dunk life-without-parole case? Not to Lindy Field, Darren¿s young and ambitious defense attorney. Library Journal calls James Scott Bell ¿a master of legal suspense¿, and that¿s clearly evident in SINS OF THE FATHERS. With a keep-you-guessing plot, witty dialogue, and memorable three-dimensional characters, I tried to savor it and read little bits each day. But by the time I was half-way through, I couldn¿t put it down. I like that about a book. I also appreciate how the faith element is woven into the plot in unpreachy ways. We discover Christian truths right along with Lindy and company, and we root for her every step of the way. SINS OF THE FATHERS probably compares closest to Jim¿s award winning FINAL WITNESS, but with even more depth (and minus the Russian mafia). The suspense definitely never rests in a James Scott Bell novel ... and neither, apparently, does James Scott Bell. I highly recommend this book to thriller and contemporary fiction readers alike.
