New York defense attorney Neil Brewster has everything he’s ever wanted: an expensive Manhattan apartment, a gorgeous fiancé, a forthcoming partnership in his law firm, and a reputation for winning even the most hopeless cases. His utter ruthlessness and bullying–both in and out of the courtroom–are legendary, and have been since his childhood.
With a new high profile court case looming, a camping reunion with his old high school cronies becomes just the distraction he needs. But Neil’s weekend plunges into disarray when he’s confronted with the sins of his past.
After learning about the suicide of the boy he bullied relentlessly as a teenager, Neil is tormented by ghostly voices and apparitions. His shrewd mind, whose preeminence has been vital to his success, begins to crumble as the hauntings become more harrowing and deadly. Frantic, Neil descends into a frenzied search for answers, only to discover that things aren’t always what they seem.
I know a lot of people give different grades to this novel, but anyway I will be very honest with the reviews I’ve made this. There are many bad things raised in this story such as torture, sexual harassment, suicide, death, killing and all the other bad things. In fact, I also stopped reading this story, but I feel tempted by Michael Bradley’s narrative. The story is like giving flashes, keys and then startled at the end. That’s why I believe if there are many readers who try to find the end. But believe me, you will not end up reading the last page.
So what’s wrong with Neil Brewster? The lawyer is successful and has a beautiful fiancee. He is famous for his exaggerated attitude in court. Neil Brewster’s character as a bully has been owned since he was little, and he is not as successful as he is now. He is imprisoned by mistakes, cruel acts on his friends and He is not an open person. Torture and bullying on his little friends are not uncommon. Now he must be compelled to see the story. He does not have many friends and does not have confidence in himself. And the reunion with his friends has become a new thing and will open a long story for Neil. Then did Neil feel that what happened now was the result of past sin. He always looks down on others and feels most righteous and valuable.
Does Neil have to confess his bad deeds and gain sympathy? I can’t answer it because it is very interesting. I tried to find out since the first chapter and it was really an intrigue. I was impressed with how this storyline was made by Michael Bradley. But some of the less interesting things of this story are too predictable. I feel a bit disappointed because I feel fewer challenges. The key answers are at the beginning of the story so that in the next chapter I feel finding the answers already stored in my heart. But I think it does not matter with the background of this story.
Although this is mystery & thrillers story, I will share the message for you. Not everyone is pure, not everyone is clean but we also do not deserve to behave like Neil. Sometimes we have mistakes in the past, but it’s better to admit it than to be late! So back to the storyline. In fact, this novel is very entertaining and not too difficult to understand. Some surprises remain in this novel, and there are some that are hard to guess. I highly recommend this novel and it is worth reading.
