This is a terrific edge of your seat thriller that combines a tender, unshakeable bond between mother and son with an action-packed plot in which the son is being blamed for a murder he did not commit or did he? In the face of accusations, mum swears to save her son from being destroyed by a system that's all too eager to convict him, no matter what the consequences.

Synopsis

Saving Max by Antoinette Van Heugten

The world thinks her son’s a killer. She’s determined to prove them wrong. High-powered lawyer Danielle is at her wit’s end. Her son Max, a whip-smart sixteen-year-old with high-functioning autism, has always been a handful. But lately he’s shutting down, using drugs and lashing out.

When Max is discovered, unconscious and bloody, beside a fellow psychiatric patient who has been brutally stabbed to death its hard not to question his innocence.

Jill Peters

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
