The Night Lawyer by Alex Churchill
About The Book
Sophie Angel is the night lawyer. Once a week, she’s the one who decides what the papers can and can’t say.
During the day, she’s a barrister. She struggles for justice in a system that’s close to collapse, where she confronts the most dangerous aspects of humanity.
Her life changes when a wealthy Russian offers her the biggest case of her career, a rape trial with a seemingly innocent client.
But is someone manipulating Sophie from the shadows? With her marriage under strain and haunted by nightmares from the past, Sophie must find the answer to these questions before it’s too late.
WARNING, this is a very addictive read, proceed with caution!
Yes, I am not joking, you start the book in the present, when Sophie’s life is messed up and someone is waiting for her at her office… Scary? This will just be the beginning, because it will not only be the work that will start crumble down but also her personal life.
Sophie is a barrister during the day and at night she works in a newspaper trying to save the justice, she has her worlds totally separated and doesn’t like the thought of having to mix them up; but everything will change when the newspaper she works has a new owner with a Russian wife. Yes, you can expect family lies and secrets that will be discovered as the story progresses; but don’t worry they will make you more eager to continue reading the story.
The case she will “not get involved” but that will treat her life is not easy, a man who has been accused of killing and raping a woman, there are a lot of evidence that point to him as the culprit, but he says that he is innocent. I really didn’t like him as a person so when he starts obsessing with Sophie his character turned a much darker side as you can expect. I can’t stay without saying a few words about Sophie’s husband, I didn’t like/trust him since the beginning, a partner that when you have a nightmare and can’t hold you because he has work next day is not someone that I would like in my life ever. And of course there’s the story of Sophie’s childhood life, her past in Russia and her memories from there, I can say that this was my favourite part.
As you can see there are multiple plots in the same story, they are all fascinating, twisted and interesting; making the reader impossible to put down the book. Ready?
