Reviews

"Ingenious . . . Nothing is predictable. All bets are off."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"A legal thriller that's comparable to classics such as Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent . . . Tragic and shocking, Defending Jacob is sure to generate buzz."--Associated Press

"Stunning . . . a novel that comes to you out of the blue and manages to keep you reading feverishly until the whole thing is completed."--The Huffington Post

"Gripping . . . [Landay] keeps you turning the pages through the shocking gut-punch of an ending."--Entertainment Weekly

"Gripping, emotional murder saga . . . The shocking ending will have readers pulling up their bedcovers to ward off the haunting chill."--People

"The hype is justified. . . . Exceptionally serious, suspenseful, engrossing."--The Washington Post

"Not since Scott Turow has a crime thriller--any thriller, though this too happens to be a literary legal thriller--shaken me by the throat like this. It's a stunning, shocking, emotionally harrowing ride in which the reader is plunged into a riveting but terrible murder trial and the equally heartbreaking implosion of a loving family."--Daily Mail

"Even with unexpected twists and turns, the two narratives interlock like the teeth of a zipper, building to a tough and unflinching finale. This novel has major motion picture written all over it."--The Boston Globe

"[William] Landay does the seemingly impossible by coming up with a new wrinkle in the crowded subgenre of courtroom thrillers. . . . It's inevitable that he'll be compared to Scott Turow, but this novel succeeds on its own merits."--Kirkus Reviews
