Fingerprints is a book that is a fast read. A murder mystery of a young man being accused of a murder he did not commit and a mother doing everything she can, including investigating the murder, to free her son. The story grabs you from the beginning and does not let go until the end. Very absorbing likable characters and a believable storyline. The author weaves two separate but very important stories into each chapter. The ending for me was actually a surprise. I think that the mystery lover will enjoy this book.
First I'd like to say I missed one of my favorite events in the Olympics because of this book. It sucked me in harder than a good LifeTime movie on a Sunday. Julie's resilience to prove her mentally challenged son is innocent is the driving force behind this story. As a mother myself I could see me continuing on long after the police had wiped their hands of it. Marcia Leonard did a great job with her main characters though a few of her others were textbook. It didn't make a difference because they all worked well together. The budding romance between Julie and Clarke could have been anyone of my neighbors which made it all the more easier for me to relate to them because they were every day people. This book made me question the justice system. How many times are innocent people locked up without someone like Julie to fight for them? Just a few weeks ago a man was proved innocent after serving 17 years. If you were wrongly accused would anyone fight for you? What if it was your mentally challenged son? How hard would you fight? Fingerprints is a well written mystery/who done it in which I didn't know who or why the person killed in the first place. I highly recommend this book to others and am looking forward to more by this author. 4.5 Golden Stars Golden Pen This book was provided for review purposes.
