Victims of Circumstance

( 1 )

Overview

For twenty years he knew the man who murdered his wife. He knew he was where he belonged: in a jail cell, never again to see the light of day as a free man. It didn't help Chris Redgrave move on, but it was enough. Then the new city-slicker State Attorney of Palm Beach County came to pay him a visit. He told Chris of advances in DNA testing.

Overview

For twenty years he knew the man who murdered his wife. He knew he was where he belonged: in a jail cell, never again to see the light of day as a free man. It didn't help Chris Redgrave move on, but it was enough. Then the new city-slicker State Attorney of Palm Beach County came to pay him a visit. He told Chris of advances in DNA testing. He told him of recanted witness statements and a racist, good ol' boy culture that mistook an innocent man for a guilty one. And he told him of Julian Anderson's release from prison.

As his closure unravels and memories of his wife's brutal death haunt him once again, Chris wages war with himself over if he can accept that his wife's true killer has lived free for the past two decades. But when the new investigation into his wife's murder unearths clues that indicate Anderson may be guilty after all, Chris is convinced he had it right all along. Knowing that the politically motivated State Attorney will never admit he made a mistake, Chris is forced to examine just how far he will go to achieve justice.

    I was literally on the edge of my seat as I read Victims of Circ

    I was literally on the edge of my seat as I read Victims of Circumstance by John Scanlan! From the opening pages right down through the last sentence, Scanlan did an excellent job of keeping me in suspense. I played the guessing game, as the detectives worked this seemingly difficult case. My emotions were constantly caught in a tug of war amongst many of the characters. There were times I felt sorry for Chris Redgrave, as he wallowed in self pity. He suffered for so very long over the loss of his wife. And though Chris believed he had found so type of closure, the emotions of the moment that changed his life came rushing back in a major way. I was empathetic and frustrated with Chris throughout the novel. I was able to relate so well to what he was going through that I hated the guy that was "wrongfully accused" of Chris' wife's death, Julian Anderson. But as the novel unfolded and the story fell into place, I was pretty much a puppet. There were a host of characters that played significant roles in this wonderful read. I breezed through the book, enjoying every minute of this work.

    John Scanlan's novel was splendid. This is Scanlan's second novel, and I've been fortunate to have read both. I look forward to reading more of his work in the future. Keep up the good work, Mr. Scanlan!
