Descrição

When Carrie was accused of brutally murdering her husband’s lover, she denied it. She denied it when they arrested her, when they put her in front of a jury, and when they sent her to prison. Now she’s three years into a 15-year sentence, away from the daughter she loves and the life she had built. And she is still denying that she is to blame.

Tess Gilroy has devoted her life to righting wrongs. Through her job for Innocence UK, a charity which takes on alleged miscarriages of justice, she works tirelessly to uncover the truth. But when she is asked to take Carrie’s case, Tess realizes that if she is to help this woman, she must risk uncovering the secrets she has struggled for a lifetime to hide.

    Tess works for The Innocence Network, which helps prisoners who are wrongly convicted of crimes. The latest case is Carrie, who is convicted of murdering her husband's mistress. The case is unusual because the organization never had to investigate a woman. Tess is also assigned a new trainee, Avril. They talk to several witnesses who knew Carrie, her pregnant daughter, and her ex-husband. As details emerge, Tess is unsure whether Carrie is guilty or innocent, in addition, Tess's personal life is also affected by the case. I received this book from Edelweiss for an honest review. Clear my name is full of twists and surprises. I like the way the investigation took time to solve, interjecting detours in the story. I wasn't expecting the crime and Tess's past to have a connection. I had learned about the Innocence Project due to the Central Park Five. It is a different view of a murder mystery. The story focused only on Tess and Avril. The other characters you really don't know at all other than an appearance. The book should have explored Tess' life and emotions more, it felt she was monotone with everything in her life. I do recommend the book.

    Tess Gilroy works for Innocence UK, who take on cases of people who they believe are innocent of the crime they are in prison for. Carrie Kamara is in prison for the murder of her husbands girlfriend but she claims she didn't do it.I have read books by Paula Daly before and enjoyed them and this is no exception. I found myself flying through the book as it was so easy to read but very engaging.The story follows Tess as she goes over the evidence and looking for new to take Carrie's case to the court of appeal. All the time reading the book I couldn't make up my mind if Carrie was guilty or not right to the end when all is revealed. I did think that some of the things that happened was perhaps a little bit flawed and maybe making things fit. To explain my thoughts could give too much away and spoil.I quite liked Tess and could see her returning in another book. She has her own back story which became intwinded with the case, but it's a thriller so it's what the reader might expect.This story didn't really bring anything new or original but was an interesting read and had me invested till the end. There are many thrillers out there and for me some break away from the crowd because of the big twist. This book had some twists but many I saw coming. Overall though a quite enjoyable read.

    I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.This was an interesting premise: Tess is the investigator for a charity called Innocence UK, which identifies miscarriages of justice and works towards appeal. Here Tess has to determine whether Carrie killed her husband's girlfriend four years ago. Tess is being shadowed by a new recruit, Avril. The relationships between Tess and Avril and Tess and Clive (her married lover) were well-done, and the investigating scenes were interesting. Sadly Tess had a 'big secret' from her past which (surprise) became entwined in the current case, causing her to behave in a disappointing way.The very ending was one of a type of which I am not fond (and I didn't really understand why Tess was so sure things would escalate so suddenly - although of course she was right). Still, I read it in more or less one sitting and found it a page-turner: recommended.
