The Speed of Life

I went into this read completely blind. I was immediately submerged in a world of violence, conflicting versions of the truth, and a mother’s struggle to redeem her son.

When Estella is brutally raped and told that the attack was instigated by her son to appease his criminal cohorts, she refuses to believe it. She begins a harrowing quest to prove her son’s innocence.

This novel is a compelling exploration of the tenuous bonds between myth and reality. It exposes the flimsy barriers humanity erects against unwelcome revelations, and the subtle differences that influence our perception of events.

If you have been on the hunt for a genre-defying crime read, I highly recommend this story.
