Innocence

By David Hosp (Mass Market, 2010)
Struggling Boston attorney Scott Finn is happy to do any legal work-until he lands the most twisted case of his career. Fifteen years ago, a female cop was viciously beaten and shot. Fingerprint evidence sent a man named Vincente Salazar to prison for fifty years. But today new DNA clues suggest he's innocent-and Finn is determined to find the truth. Then the cops block his investigation and the victim, who survived, won't talk to him. As his case unravels, Finn is shocked to discover that many of Boston's finest are risking their badges-and even their lives-to lie about this crime. Now the thin blue line between guilt and innocence stretches from Central America to the Boston suburbs . . . and is about to entangle Finn in its deadly web.

  • On INNOCENCE
    "Red hot fiction rooted in stone cold fact - a legal thriller to rival the best from Grisham or Turow."

  • On INNOCENCE "Explodes in the first chapter and catapults the reader through forty-four more. Hosp hits the trifector -- brilliant, brawny and totally believable."

  • "Written with frightening brutality and a thrilling pace, Innocence will leave readers wanting more of Scott Finn."

  • "David Hosp is the author to look for in legal thrillers. I haven't read one this good since John Grisham."

  • "A 5-star legal thriller that will grab you and keep holding on."

  • "For a debut thriller, this is a knockout: Grisham with passion, even a touch of the great Michael Connolly thrown in, plus a dash of Scott Turow from the early days of Presumed Innocent." (Daily Mail).

  • "Hosp is a born storyteller, a master of quirky character and detail who enthralls through the simple, but elusive, expedient of never seeming to write a dull sentence. Arguably, his "inspirations," Grisham and Turow, have never written as grippingly." (The Daily Telegraph).
