Defending Jacob by William Landay
In Defending Jacob, Andy Barber is a respected assistant district attorney when a teenage boy is stabbed to death in a local park. Evidence makes Andy's fourteen-year-old son, Jacob, the prime suspect. When Jacob is charged with murder, Andy refuses to believe his son could be guilty and does everything he can to defend his son. It's a decision that threatens his marriage and could potentially reveal secrets Andy has harbored since childhood. It also leads to difficult truths that Andy would rather not face. William Landay's novel has received mostly positive reviews with BookReporter.com saying, "Defending Jacob presents an unsettling picture on an exquisite but disturbing canvas, one that will haunt the reader long after the final sentences of the book are read."
