also Pamela Wechsler s debut novel and very well written The author s extensive experience of working Pamela Wechsler s debut novel and very well written The author s extensive experience of working the legal system is obvious Mission Hill is uite an intense legal thriller with a plot that becomes and complex involving murder gangs betrayal and corruption and it s all very very personal for Abby It was a genuine page turner and I really enjoyed it I m a bit torn about my feelings about Abby I guess she s kind of the perfect flawed character She s incredibly determined when it comes to her ob and getting Silvers Edge justice for victims She also seems to be oblivious and totally comfortable when it comes to telling lies or maybeust hiding some facts She does it to everyone her boy friend her family her colleagues But there is also a very vulnerable side to her and at times she has uite a good dry sense of humor So all in all she s very intriguing I am looking forward reading about Abby her complicated
relationships with her family and the men in her life well as the cases with her family and the men in her life as well as the cases is working onMany thanks to St Martin s Press for my ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review Great new to me series I love legal thrillers and this one hit all the right buttons I have gone back and forth about my feelings toward this book On one hand I really liked it I sailed through it in fact The storyline was great the characters as you would expect from Pamela Wechsler are terrific Based on those two things alone I would have given Mission Hill 4stars instead of three However the primary character Abby Endicott is annoying as hell She is great at her ob is politically correct sort of but she is part of the 1% who chooses to lower herself by working in the DA s office We literally have to know the label on every single item of clothingshoes she puts on and the designerartist for all of her ewelryart Seriously It was extremely off puttingno annoying Wechsler was the producer for some of my favorite legal shows on television and I have to hope that after this debut book she will get past the fascination with labels If not I won t continue the series Otherwise the writing is great LOL. Been a horrific murder but is vague about the specifics When she arrives at the crime scene and discovers the identity of the victim Abby knows the terror and tragedy are only beginningIn Mission Hill debut novelist Pamela Wechsler delivers a gripping and very human portrayal of a woman who will stop at nothing to find the truth even if it challenges everything she believes about ustice.
