HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
David Lyons is the master of the twist, I always know there will be one and I know it will make me cry.
Firstly this is a warning before I begin, this is a court case and jury debate about three men accused of raping a woman, so if this sort of thing upsets you give it a miss.
The story really begins after all the evidence has been heard and the jury has retired to discuss their verdict. Most of the jurors have elected to be known by numbers with the odd one using their name. Through the book, you get to know who they are and a little about their lives. The evidence is retold through the court transcripts that the jurors go through from the first meeting of Sabrina, and the three men Jason, who is a famous footballer and his old school buddies Zach and Li to the end of the evening. Firstly how she sees it and secondly how they see it.
Never having been called for jury service myself I can only go by what I have heard but when you read about it like this it really makes you wonder why the fate of a verdict could possibly rest on twelve people that haven’t a bloody clue really.
I loved being a fly on the wall while they all debated and where I made judgements not just about the three on trial but the jury too. Oh boy, I had my say while I was reading when certain people got my back up!!! I really like how David Lyons lets me into the minds of his characters where I wanted to be the Jiminy Cricket on their shoulder shouting advice. There were times that I had to sit back knowing what would happen and feeling so helpless. I am still in shock.
This is another brilliant read from this author
