Conhecimento Comum



This book tells the story of Lizzie and Zach (who are law school friends) and Zach's wife, Amanda. Lizzie is working late one night and receives a phone call from Zach, who has been arraigned and is at Rikers. He asks Lizzie to represent him on an assault charge. She is not the right type of lawyer to represent him and tells him so repeatedly but she ends up representing him. During the course of the conversation, Zach divulges that the "assault" took place when the police were trying to pull him away from Amanda's body. He is adamant that he did not murder her and wants Lizzie to find out who did. Lizzie starts investigating and finds out that Zach is not what he says he is and Amanda has her own secrets as well - she was being stalked and never told Zach about her dad. They have a small group of friends in the Brooklyn neighborhood where they live - all have kids in the same prestigious school - and all become involved as recipients in an email hacking scam through the school.

I did not anticipate the ending and usually try not to figure out "who did it" but my thoughts went in one direction only to be pulled in a completely different direction. It was a very well-written book and alternated between Lizzie's story (her husband is an alcoholic) and her investigation along with Amanda's story, including the last few days leading up to the night she was killed.
