"It's the most sensational case of the decade. Fifteen-year-old Jessica Silver, heiress to a billion-dollar real estate fortune, vanishes on her way home from school. Her teacher Bobby Nock, a twenty-five-year-old African American man, is the prime suspect after illicit text messages are discovered between them--and Jessica's blood is found in his car. The subsequent trial taps straight into America's most pressing preoccupations: race, class, sex, law enforcement, and the lurid sins of the rich and famous. It's an open and shut case for the prosecution, and a quick conviction seems all but guaranteed. Until Maya Seale, a young woman on the jury, convinced of Nock's innocence, persuades the rest of the jurors to return the verdict of not guilty, a controversial decision that will change all of their lives forever. Flash forward ten years. A true-crime docuseries reassembles the jurors, with particular focus on Maya, now a defense attorney herself. When one of the jurors is found dead in Maya's hotel room, all evidence points to her as the killer. Now, she must prove her own innocence--by getting to the bottom of a case that is far from closed. As the present-day murder investigation weaves together with the story of what really happened during their deliberation, told by each of the jurors in turn, the secrets they have all been keeping threaten to come out--with drastic consequences for all involved"--… (mais)

I loved this book, it had me guessing to just about the end and although I somewhat guessed the truth reading how and why was just great. I would definitely recommend this to any of my book reading friends. ( )

Last book I read during my isolation in Shanghai. Well-written and portraying our legal system

The view of a juror that would later become a defense lawyer, The Holdout is not only entertaining but also informative. In short, a very recommendable legal thriller. ( )

In 2009, Maya is a juror in a murder trial. When the jury goes in for deliberations, she is the sole juror believing that the defendant is innocent.

Ten years later, a TV production crew wants to have a "reunion" of the jurors and gets all but one together in the same hotel they had been sequestered in ten years earlier. Maya decides to go at the last minute and runs into fellow juror, Rick, with whom she had been involved during the trial and shortly afterward. Rick also wrote a book about Maya after the trial which did not put her in a favorable light. When Rick is found dead in Maya's hotel room, she becomes the prime suspect but she claims she was out for a walk at the time.

The book is written alternating between then and now. The "then" chapters tell a version of events from a different juror's perspective while the "now" chapters describe what happens before, during and after the reunion.

I really enjoyed this book. I heard that Hulu is going to make this one into a series. Will most likely watch. ( )

I received this book on a Monday night and had finished it by the time I went to sleep Tuesday morning. It was a quick read that propelled me forward, but the storyline was rather predictable. ( )
