Accused

by Mark Gimenez

Part of the A. Scott Fenney Series

Accused Synopsis

'Scott, it's Rebecca. I need you.' After years of silence, Texan lawyer Scott Fenney receives a devastating phonecall from his ex-wife. She has been accused of murdering her boyfriend, Trey - the man she left Scott for - and is being held in a police cell. Now she is begging Scott to defend her. Scott is used to high-stakes cases, but this one is bigger than anything he has handled before. If Rebecca is found guilty, she will be sentenced to life imprisonment. Her future is in his hands. As he prepares to take the stand in the most dramatic courtroom appearance of his life, Scott is forced to question everything he believes to get to the truth - to save the life of the ex-wife he still loves....

Accused Press Reviews

For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength...this is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent * Daily Mail * This mix of family values, sex, sleaze and intrigue holds together in a gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years * The Times * Offers the reader everything they could want from a thriller, and is a very satisfying read. * Civilian Reader * If you enjoy suspense and a fast-paced courtroom drama, this one's for you. * Foschini Club Magazine * A great read. . . . Gimenez is a thriller writer of quality. * Oamuru Mail * Gimenez's latest novel Accused is classic Grisham at his best. * Gisborne Herald * Unputdownable for those who love the genre. * Times of India * Gimenez writes smart vernacular dialogue, hip and street-wise, with a nice line in social commentary, and his plotting leaves the over-rated John Grisham in his rear-vision mirror. * The Australian * Brilliant writing, masterful plot and all the thrill of the courtroom in one. Grisham, step aside. * City AM * A gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years. * The Times * Some critics are calling the Texas-based lawyer Mark Gimenez 'the next Grisham'-but I think that's far less than fair. This, his fifth novel and the second featuring attorney A. Scott Fenney, shows he's now better than the one-time master of the American courtroom drama . . . This is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987 . . . Superb. * Daily Mail *
