about this item

Only at Target, find the September, 2013, Club Pick "Defending Jacob" by William Landay.

The quiet New England town is known as a good place to raise kids. Andy Barber, the county's assistant district attorney for more than twenty years, and his loving wife, Laurie, have raised their own son Jacob there. Then a shocking murder rocks the community. Days after leading the investigation, Andy is removed from the case, blindsided by what happens next: His teenage son is charged with killing a fellow student. Though the evidence against Jacob is alarming, the boy maintains his innocence. Andy stands by his son without question. Laurie struggles to keep herself and her family together. Jacob remains stoic and defiant. Friends and neighbors distance themselves from the Barbers, who become increasingly isolated. As a marriage threatens to crumble, a family's united front wavers, and the trial intensifies, Andy will take the law into his own hands-all in the name of defending Jacob.

Crime - court thriller at its best. Fast paced story about Jacob who is accused and prosecuted for killing a classmate. Twist and turns mixed with a roller coaster of emotions. A novel with questions and characters that will stick with the reader long after the book has ended.
