Yesterday, Shannon threw an innocent woman in jail, leaving a murderer on the loose. Today, a killer threatened her family. Tomorrow, he's coming for her. 

"(Conviction) is an intense and suspenseful murder mystery. It captured me from the first chapter and held me enthralled until the final page." 
~Susan Sewell, Reader's Favorite

"A white-knuckled thrill ride from first page to last." 
~Andra Watkins, NYT bestselling author of Not Without My Father


Shannon Taylor takes no prisoners--save the ones she tosses into lockup. Between convicting criminals as an Ash Park district attorney, dealing with her jerk ex-husband (who also happens to be her boss), and caring for her dying brother, Shannon is already stretched thin. So she's less than thrilled when new evidence from a closed case emerges--evidence suggesting she threw a young mother in jail for a murder she didn't commit. 

Shannon knows the girl is hiding something. But whatever the secret, it is even more compelling than the hope of freedom--the girl won't talk. 

When Shannon becomes the target of a series of cryptic and bloody warnings, she must find a way to protect everyone she holds dear. Will her persistence free an innocent woman? Or will her pursuit of the truth turn her family into helpless targets in a madman's game? 

Conviction runs deep. Courage runs deeper. And nothing in Ash Park is as it seems.

Conviction is the wildly provocative second novel in Ash Park series by bestselling author Meghan O'Flynn. If you're a fan of J.D.Robb, Jennifer McMahon, or Laura Lippman, the Ash Park series is for you!

Conviction is the second book in Meghan O’Flynn’s Ash Park series that takes place in the run down area of Detroit. It could be read as a standalone but there is a backstory and characters that are present throughout the series. You can see how the writer has gotten deeper into the Ash Park world, the story is complex and the characters have layers, you learn more about them and it makes you understand where they come from and why they act the way they do. All of them are like us – dark and light – and it is up to them how they choose. We have Petrosky and Morrison with Shannon Taylor from the prosecutor’s office and all of them have their doubts regarding the ‘guilty’ verdict that the young woman Ashley Johnson received. And the doubts grow stronger when Shannon gest stalked and her family gets harassed … and there is a galore of suspects … take your pick! At the same time, the story is much more than just trying to find out who the killer is … I am looking forward to the next story to see where the writer takes us …

Conviction (Ash Park #2) by Meghan O'Flynn was just as, no, it was more dark and thrilling then the last book. I didn't think it was possible, but this series is fast becoming an obsession. The second book in the Ash Park series, we are once again tossed into the dark underbelly of Ash Park, this time following Shannon Taylor, Ash Park district attorney. We met he in the last book, and I didn't know too much about her, only that I liked her and having this story centered around her was quite a thriller treat. Shannon is a fierce character, she is the attorney you want on your side, and would do anything to never be on her bad side. She's a strong character, and one that I believe was written in a real, complex way that made you connect with her. She isn't perfect, and is trying to do her best to put the baddies away, while wondering if she made a life changing mistake years ago. I will tell you that this book, was wow. The mystery, the clues and the plot twist. I didn't see it coming, and I was shocked. Again Meghen played with our hearts, twisted our emotions and lead us/me astray. Nothing was wasted, even the subplots. Having such multi-layered writing, added to the complexity of this story and, it made for such a big polt bomb, that I had to put the book down just to process. This series is just everything I didn't know I wanted, and I can't stop reading. As I said, I'm a little obsessed, and I think my dreams are going to be a little nightmarish for a few nights. So yes, I give this book my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh

Conviction by Meghan O’Flynn is the second book in her new series, Ash Park Series, and this is another great read! Continuing the story of Detectives Petrosky and Morrison, who have a very unique relationship. Introducing Shannon Taylor, lawyer, who is saddled with a crazy case and then having to deal with Petrosky and Morrison. The closer that this trio gets, the harder it is for them to not rub each other the wrong way, but the case is getting too deep for either of them to go it alone. The dynamics between these guys was so great getting to watch it all unfold, along with the mystery of this case and the sprinklings of romance only top it all off with a cherry. Once I started this series I knew that I needed to see it out, because I couldn’t have put it down if I tried. This book is a heart racing, pulse pounding thriller, with allot of who dun its and edge of your seat sitting. Each of the supporting characters only served to compliment these main characters and it was great to really see them all play together throughout the story. I couldn’t wait to see where this story went, who dun it, and see the relationships develop. If you are looking for a wild roller coaster ride of book that is sure to pull you in from the very beginning, than this is the book for you. Because this is a part of a series, I highly recommend reading it in series order! O’Flynn is a great author and she can pull you into her stories effortlessly. I can’t wait to see how this story turns out in the next book!

Conviction was a good 4 star read. We start with the prologue where Shannon is in court prosecuting Ashley, a woman who is accused of killing her drug dealer boyfriend. This part is in Ashley’s POV. Did she really do it? What's going to happen to her baby? Shannon is proud that she got a conviction in her case, but was she really the killer? Ashley’s lawyer is convinced she didn’t do it and is determined to find the truth. When some leads come in on a case that she thought was closed, things start to take some interesting twists. Shannon also finds herself in danger. There were so many people that could be guilty my head was spinning and totally not who I thought when we finally get the answer. There were so many great characters, some likable some hateable. My heart went out to Ashley and what she was put through. This was a great edge of your seat read that pulled me right in. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Conviction by Meghan O’Flynn 5-stars Conviction is another must read book by Meghan O’Flynn. It’s the second book in the Ash Park series. Though it can be read as a standalone I would suggest reading book 1 first in order to get all of the character introductions. Just like the first one I found myself completely captivated by this storyline. I had so many questions from the start that I couldn’t bring myself to put it down, I just had to figure it all out. This book is intriguing, dark, detailed, riveting and so suspenseful. Meghan is truly a phenomenal author, she creates these incredibly dark worlds and questionable characters along with storylines that will have you guessing the whole way through. I love how just when I think I have it all figured out something new is added which has me questioning everything all over again. I would absolutely recommend this book and series to anyone looking for their next suspenseful crime read!

Including the twists and turns O'Flynn is becoming known for, Conviction is a fantastic follow up to her debut novel Famished. With well-defined, multifaceted and gripping characters, another page turner that left me breathless with anticipation. Drawing from her real-life background in psychology, Ms. O'Flynn has not only found her calling but has definitely found a fan in me. I could not have predicted the ending, and neither will you! I received an advanced reader copy of this book, in exchange for a fair and honest review. I'll be purchasing another copy of it soon.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Conviction: An Ash Park Novel by Meghan O'Flynn is a thrilling murder mystery. Shannon Taylor is an Ash Park District Attorney with a no-nonsense tough attitude working under her cheating ex-husband. A drug dealer becomes the victim, after beating his tiny baby with his belt. Shannon tries the girlfriend for murder and wins the case. However, Petrosky and Harrison, a couple of police officers don't believe that she is guilty and are trying to find evidence that will prove her innocence. Harrison is a very close friend of Shannon's, and because of their relationship, she listens even though she doesn't agree. Shannon's kitten is found brutally murdered on the back porch, minus its head. The next day the head is placed on her car with a note. Soon after, Shannon's car is busted up and broken into, and the only items taken are the notes from the murder trial. Shannon is now beginning to believe that she may have made a mistake in pursuing the conviction. Now the murderer is after her and her family. As Harrison, Petrosky and Shannon search for the killer, their fellow law enforcement officers become suspects. They are her friends; how are they related to the murder and why would they want Shannon dead? Conviction: An Ash Park Novel by Meghan O'Flynn is an intense and suspenseful murder mystery. It captured me from the first chapter and held me enthralled until the final page. Shannon's character has a very forceful personality tinged with ferocity. Due to the painful events in her life, she exhibits resentment and antagonism. It is a relief when she changes direction in the end and reveals compassion and love, giving evidence of her character's personal growth. She is an outstanding character in a thrilling novel. This book is a phenomenal murder mystery, and I recommend it to those who enjoy a good, suspenseful read. However, it does contain some sexual content and is more appropriate for those who are over the age of eighteen.

I received this book free from the author to read and leave an honest review. This is the second in a series with Detective Petrotsky. Although I have not read the first book, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is also Shannon who is the prosecutor and good at her job, but is also a flawed person. There are several other characters that will keep you guessing as to which one is the murderer. Meghan O'Flynn writes a well-executed story with involving characters that keep you interested and wondering throughout the story. This is a gripping story that you will want to read over and over again. This is mystery writing at its best. This is a marvelous read and I highly recommend it.
