"Wow! I loved The Holdout, in which author Graham Moore does the impossible, creating a page-turning legal thriller with a twisty and absolutely riveting plot, as well as raising profound and thought-provoking questions about the jury system and modern justice. All that, plus a strong and compelling female heroine in lawyer Maya Seale, whom you'll root for as the tables turn against her and she finds herself behind bars, with everything on the line. You won't be able to put this one down!"--Lisa Scottoline, #1 bestselling author of Someone Knows "Graham Moore's heart beats on every page of The Holdout, a murder trial as only he could have written it: secrets and lies, mysteries upon mysteries, and a cast of characters each with their own dubious motives. This is a tense, emotionally charged, scary-good, standout read that hooked me till the last page."--Caroline Kepnes, author of You "The most gripping and satisfying thriller I've read in more than a decade."--Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author of The Monogram Murders "This stellar novel from bestseller [Graham] Moore takes a searing look at the U.S. justice system, media scrutiny, and racism. . . . Moore has set a new standard for legal thrillers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The twists are sharp and the flashbacks that uncover what each juror knows are placed for maximum impact in this rollicking legal thriller. . . . Moore expertly combines deft character work with mounting bombshell revelations in a story that will attract new readers and also seems primed for the big screen."--Library Journal (starred review) "[A] stemwinder of a murder mystery wrapped in a legal thriller . . . The story is gripping, and the pace is furious."--Booklist "Quite the tour de force! Twelve Angry Men meets Chinatown and creates something of its own."--Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes "Clever, well-written, and twistier than a can of Silly String. You absolutely need to read The Holdout! I could not put it down."--Emma Kavanagh, author of To Catch a Killer "Plunge a syringe filled with adrenaline into the heart of Twelve Angry Men and you've got The Holdout."--A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
