Inhaltsangabe zu „The Ex:“ von Alafair Burke

In this breakout standalone thriller in the tradition of Gillian Flynn, William Landay and Paula Hawkins, a lawyer agrees to help an old boyfriend who has been accused of murder-but begins to suspect that she is the one being manipulated. Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene since the shooting of his wife by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman who eerily but thrillingly echoes his past. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a "Missed Moment" item online and days later, a woman responds... Olivia Randall is one of New York City's best criminal defense lawyers. When she gets the phone call informing her that her former fiance, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him - and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, and the hurt she caused him, but as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

    This book was an absolutely page-turner for me. It did not get me right from the beginning, but after a while I was hooked. And it did not matter that you could see the twists coming. The author made an excellent job in holding the balance between all the options. I also liked how we get to know about Jacks and Olivia’s history. Olivia is a strong and independent woman, maybe not the nicest of all people. She spent the last 20 years feeling guilty for what she did to Jack. She always thought highly of him, thought he was too good for her, but after a while she entertains the idea that he might be a cold blooded killer. The story has a good flow and I liked the storyline. I also enjoyed the writing; we were quite close to Olivia and her doing her job. This was an excellent read and I enjoyed it very much.
