Struggling to pick herself up, she’s offered her old job at Goldman Law. Jack Goldman’s estranged son Julian has been arrested for attempted murder and he wants Natalie to find out why.
With the help of fellow solicitor Gavin Savage, Natalie sets out to investigate, but with a series of red herrings ahead, will she ever discover the truth?
And can Natalie avoid her personal problems interfering with the case?
Convictions is the first book in a gripping new legal, crime suspense series.
✨MY THOUGHTS ✨
This is a great first book to introduce us to the main character Natalie Bach. She has recently finished with The Spaniard, Jose. And, is back in Manchester living with her mother. Soon to be forty she feels like her life has taken a big of a nose dive.
But, she gets her old job back in Goldman Law firm. The owner Jack Goldman, sees Natalie as a daughter he never had and is glad to have her back in the fold.
It doesn’t take long for Natalie to settle back into working life. She is soon back to doing what she is best at…cracking and solving cases.
This story may not be an edge of your seat thriller. But, it’s a good foundation story and character builder. We learn a lot about Natalie’s background and of the other people around her that she works with. There are plenty of lies and secrets along the way.
This story has plenty to offer, it doesn’t just deal with one main development. It blends a whole host of stories for your entertainment.
