Perception of Death by Louise Anderson

Perception of Death

Louise Anderson

Loved this feisty compensation lawyer with all her faults and neuroses. Highly recommended thriller - even if there had to one twist too many.

Extract

The morning of Lucy Grant's rape and murder changed things for me, but not because I suddenly realised life was short and 'this was not a rehearsal'...The Friday morning, in early October, of Lucy Grant's death knocked my particular linear course into another and another and another. And as our corresponding lines bumped and ricocheted, we were forced to look at ourselves. Nobody liked what they saw.
