I took a chance on this crime novel over the summer and was really glad I did, so I wanted to share it with all of you. D.A. Diaries by Kenneth Eichner was a sexy, insane look at the criminal justice system. In my opinion, it blows the lid off the genre.
It is about a homicide prosecutor (Clay) who is assigned to a high-profile case in D.C. As the case at hand becomes more complex, so does Clay's life and there are some truly insane twists and turns. The bit of humor mixed with the crazy storyline sucked me in, which is difficult to do.
Eichner, the author, is a former prosecutor himself so it was really interesting to keep that in mind as I read the book. It is apparent that he has a great deal of experience as well as a good sense of humor, so those together made the book a great (and somewhat educational) read. I highly recommend it and if you do get a chance to read it let me know what you think!
