A brilliant thriller, narrated by the now dead central character. Just as you think you have the plot sussed it cleverly shifts under you and all you can do is read on. Our only clue is to accept nothing at face value.

If you like Joan Brady you might also like to read books by Mary Lawson, John Grisham and Scott Turow.

Synopsis

Bleedout by Joan Brady

Hugh Freyl is a blind lawyer, scion of Illinois' most influential family. He recounts this story from the grave. David Marion is Freyl's protege and a young convicted killer whose release from prison Freyl has orchestrated. He now stands accused of Hugh Freyl's murder. None from Freyl's powerful inner circle will stand up for David's innocence. The perfect scapegoat for their misdoings, he alone bears the burden of proof.

Revealing the inner-workings of an untouchable elite with all their tricks, entitlements and intricate financial schemes, Brady shows us a place that could be any small American city - a place where innocence can backfire and where fear is the only effective weapon against a corrupt government.

Reviews

'A tense, dense spiralling story where nothing and no one are ever what they seem. Joan Brady's spellbinding novel is deliciously devious, dangerously deceptive and steeped in shocking betrayal. It's a masterclass in suspense' VAL MCDERMID

‘A unique voice, a unique story, a unique study of evil… Joan Bradyâs BLEEDOUT is a gripping page turner that is also psychologically insightful and deeply moving. This book delivers on every level. Iâm eagerly awaiting more of the same from this fine writerâ JEFFERY DEAVER

‘Literate and well crafted, this should be ranked alongside Scott Turow at his bestâ Sue Bakerâs Top Titles, PUBLISHING NEWS
