In this novel, Carolyn Sullivan, a probation officer and law student, has to help her brother Neil get out of trouble. An artsy type, Neil calls Carolyn to tell her that his girlfriend was found dead in a pool. After she finds out a family secret, she begins to have doubts about Neil's innocence. All the same, she is determined to help her brother.
This was a solid if unspectacular novel. The writing was competent and professional. There were no major plot holes in the novel. At the same time, there was nothing especially Earth shattering about it either. It was a fairly pedestrian thriller with nothing to distinguish it from many of the other thrillers that I have read recently. Although entertaining, this wasn't a deep read.
