NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Entertainment Weekly a€c The Boston Globe a€c Kansas City Star a€œA legal thriller thata€™s comparable to classics such as Scott Turowa€™s Presumed Innocent . . . Tragic and shocking, Defending Jacob is sure to generate buzz.a€a€”Associated Press NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney for two decades. He is respected. Admired in the courtroom. Happy at home with the loves of his life, his wife, Laurie, and teenage son, Jacob. Then Andya€™s quiet suburb is stunned by a shocking crime: a young boy stabbed to death in a leafy park. And an even greater shock: The accused is Andya€™s own sona€”shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob. Andy believes in Jacoba€™s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighborsa€™ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andya€™s family. It is the ultimate test for any parent: How far would you go to protect your child? It is a test of devotion. A test of how well a parent can know a child. For Andy Barber, a man with an iron will and a dark secret, it is a test of guilt and innocence in the deepest sense. How far would you go?
