“Matheny has the unique ability to walk the reader through the rigorous steps of a criminal case from the initial arrest through to the trial process in his tense psychological legal thriller, The Victim.” https://walkerputsche.wordpress.com/

The story opens eleven years earlier as a young and reckless Anton Mackey makes a life changing decision to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming a large amount of whiskey. Instead of doing the right thing and reporting his horrifying crime to the authorities, he decides to destroy the evidence and walk away, unaware that his mistake will come back to haunt ten years later when he takes on a complex case that is tied up to his past.

The Victim is a gritty standalone legal thriller featuring well-developed characters, intricate and melodramatic plot lines that I found absolutely riveting from start to finish.

Disclosure: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
