This is a very good debut novel.
Already picked up to be adapted for screen.
The author IS a corporate attorney in ATLANTA. She’s writing what she knows.
Family. Secrets. Murder.
When Atlanta lawyer Ellice Littlejohn discovers her boss dead in his office, she walks away instead of calling the authorities.
Because she has been keeping a cache of dark secrets including a small-town past and a kid brother who’s spent time on the other side of the law.
Also, she’s had a long term affair with her boss. And doesn’t want that coming to light.
After that, her life gets … complicated.
