Review: The Guilty by Gabriel Boutros

The GuiltyThe Guilty by Gabriel Boutros
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Top 3 things I liked about the main character. Robert is a very hard character to like. He is arrogant, has an ego the size of an elephant What I did like was when he tried to justify what he did for a living to people around him and of course, to himself. The human behaviour element of this book is extremely powerful and Robert fuels this all through the book. The last thing I liked about Robert was the fact that although he was a horrible person, he was an engaging lawyer.
What I liked about the setting in this book. It's hard to find a legal thriller that keeps you interested from beginning to end. For many of us in the book club, we've all read and lost interest in John Grisham's novels. This book is different. For one thing, there is a stronger human involvement compared to Grisham and this case was based on actual events.
Cover. Simple and to the point. It covered everything the story was about. The gavel of judgment within Robert's work and the judgment he was now facing in his own life.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
