The sequel to the Amazon bestselling thriller!
DEAD GIRLS TELL NO TALES
She was found with a bullet in her head, and the kid she was last seen with woke up drugged and disoriented in a neighbor's back yard. Now the kid is awaiting trial for her murder, and reporter Matt Isaacs is convinced that there's more here than meets the eye.
Matt's old college pal, Ethan "Hutch" Hutchinson--washed-up actor and newly-minted trial junkie--isn't so sure... until a violent attack propels Hutch and his friends into the middle of a conspiracy that takes them all the way from the courthouse gallery to the not so hallowed halls of an exclusive Chicago prep school... straight into the hands of a killer.

NEGLIGENCE is packed with action, mystery and suspense as the reader is taken on a thrilling journey into the lives of a group of old college friends, who now years later, are dealing with their own internal conflicts, job losses, career changes and relationship challenges. This book deals with more than a murder case, which the protagonist, Hutch and his friends get involved with. It also deals with parenting issues and how secrets can have a tragic effect on family members. It also deals with friendship, loyalty, trust issues, and wanting to do the right thing, and how far some will go to not only do the right thing, but risk their lives to help. This book is aptly titled, as neglect is a running theme throughout the book. The dialogue is snappy and the interaction between the characters flows smoothly. All the characters, including the minor and secondary characters are well developed. Nurse Cathy was one of my favorite minor characters, she could make a reader laugh, shock a reader and bring a reader to tears. I really enjoyed learning more about Hutch and in this book he shows us his flaws, which allows the reader to connect with him even more the second time around. I also loved more interaction with Hutch's friends and reading their points of view in this book. This book is also packed with a lot of emotion, from giving you a few laughs at the banter between the characters to bringing you to the brink of tears. NEGLIGENCE is a tightly written murder-mystery, which encompasses all the elements of a fast paced, suspenseful action-packed, excellent crafted novel that pulls you in from the first paragraph and won't let you go until you finish the book. Reading both Trial Junkies and Negligence gives one the urge to go and sit in a courtroom and observe the “trial junkies” and the trial going on. I look forward to the next Trial Junkies book, as I want to catch up with Hutch and all his friends and see what’s in store for them next. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a well written page turner that makes you feel like you are part of Hutch’s inner circle. NEGLIGENCE is the second book in the Trial Junkies series, however, even if you haven’t as yet read Trial Junkies (and I highly recommend you do), you can read Negligence on its own. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
