Descrição

When the nude photo of a teenage runaway shows up on a website, the girl's father turns to Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks for help. But these aren't unusual circumstances, for the runaway is the daughter of a man who's determined to destroy the dedicated Yorkshire policeman's career and good name.

Still, it's a case that Banks-a father himself-dares not ignore as he follows its trail into teeming London. But when a series of gruesome murders follows soon after, Banks finds himself pulled into the past and private world of his most powerful enemy, Chief Constable Jimmy Riddle.

Peter Robinson is at the height of his storytelling skills in this twisting novel of suspense that proves you can never escape their pasts-especially when there are sordid secrets waiting to be revealed.

Sobre o autor

Juan Martinez began working for the Maricopa County Attorney’s office in 1988. In his twenty-seven-year career with the office, he has spent nineteen years prosecuting homicide cases. Some of his most noteworthy cases include Arizona v. Wendi Andriano, who was convicted of first-degree murder and was the first woman sentenced to death by a jury in Arizona; Arizona v. Scott Falater, which was noted for the use of sleepwalking as a defense to the murder of his wife; Arizona v. Loren Wade, in which an Arizona State University football player was convicted of the shooting murder of an ex-ASU football player; and Arizona v. Rick Wayne Valentini, which resulted in a conviction for murder even though the victim’s body was never found.

    I have read about and watched much about the J.Arias case. This book really gave a lot of new information about the actual trial than any other. Great job!

    I followed the Jodi Arias murder trial as it happened with great interest. It was a case that had it all: attractive young couple, lots of sex and drama complete with photos and tape recordings, as well as religious overtones, they were both Mormons. Making the story more complex and interesting was the defendant herself, a woman who not only initially denied the charges, but also came up with several implausible tales before finally settling on self-defense as her mantra. Her ability to lie was amazing, not only to police but also to reporters as she gave interviews both before and after the trial. Her love for the cameras and fame was incredible. Because of the cameras in the courtroom and the public’s fascination with this case, as well as all of the legal maneuvers involved, it was not an easy case for the prosecution to handle. However, Juan Martinez did handle it, going solo against a solid defense team with an intelligent, if not honest, client. To say that he did an amazing job would be an understatement. He knew every aspect of this case and put forth a solid one, often without having to refer to any notes. His cross-examination of the defendant was stellar. Having watched his performance, I was so happy to see he finally wrote about his experiences with this case. I was not disappointed with his effort. This book is awesome. I simply could not put it down. It was wonderful having access to what he was thinking at the time and the reasons he did things the way he did. My only disappointment was having it end. I am happy Martinez is still a prosecutor but if he ever decides to leave that profession, he is a great writer as well!

    I originally gave Conviction four stars but recently changed it to three. Martinez's account of the entire trial process was interesting to read about; however, there is nothing new with regards to the trial. If you even remotely kept track of the precedings you already know the entire story. Nevertheless, Conviction was a good read even if to simply fill in the gaps from the news coverage. The prose was pretty stilted. In other words, it read as if a lawyer had prepared the transcript. Maybe a tell-all book will come out and include Nurmi's position and what he was attempting in the defense. Arias, I believe was accurately portrayed in the text, more so since reading the book. Martinez is not given to flashy, long-winded, over-wrought prose. Everything in the book is described as very matter of fact-- much as a lawyer would recount events as if preparing for trial.
