Rose Connors brings a fresh voice, a dynamic storytelling power, and a passion for the law to her compelling crime fiction debut. Martha "Marty" Nickerson is a lawyer who truly loves her job. As an assistant D.A. for Massachusetts's Barnstable County, which includes all the small towns on Cape Cod, she speaks for the victims of crime and their families, and sees the system as a means for doing right. The case of Manuel Rodriguez is a prime example. Rodriguez is accused of brutally murdering a college student, a kind young man who had a bright future. Marty has worked hard on this case; as the mother of a teenage son, she identifies with the murdered boy's grieving parents. Her case against Rodriguez is so solid that even public defender Harry Madigan -- the champion of the Cape's underdogs -- expects a conviction. And, on Memorial Day, exactly a year after the crime, the verdict comes in: guilty as charged. Justice prevails. Then, with Rodriguez behind bars, another body turns up in disturbingly similar circumstances. Did Marty and her colleagues target the wrong man? Her supervisor -- Geraldine Schilling, who aspires to be the county's first female D.A. -- refuses to reopen such a high-profile case. Why should she? The prosecutors played by the rules and won big. But Marty fears that the real killer will strike again. With her career on the line and lives at stake, Marty must rely on her own moral compass, legal savvy, and gut instinct as she matches wits with a twisted killer. The system itself is on trial as Marty tries to serve Justice, not merely the Law. Only an author with years of courtroom experience could add such riveting authenticity to a novel that asks important questions and provides surprising answers. Rose Connors's Absolute Certainty introduces a new crime-writing star.

Exciting Courtroom Drama

Marty isn't able to bask in the glow of her success for very long, after another killer, apparently with the same M.O. strikes. Could it be they have put the wrong man behind bars? Others try to deter her from pursuing the truth, but she is a woman true to herself and the justice for which the legal system stands, and goes out on a limb to get to the heart of it. Marty is a character full of integrity: the kind you would follow into battle. Rose Connor draws her character so well and sets her plausibly in the centre of this legal scene. Connor writes about the legal system with complete credibility which, for me, was a real strong point. Be warned: this is not just an intelligent drams. It is also full of suspense that I fear may have shaved a few years of my life. I cannot recommend this book enough, and I just can't wait to see what Connors produces as a follow up. I am hoping she has a lot more dramas with Marty lined up.
