Description

INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER From the former Chief Justice of Canada—a riveting thriller starring Jilly Truitt, a rising young defense attorney faced with a case that hits close to home. When everyone has something to hide, the truth is the only defense. There's nothing Jilly Truitt likes more than winning a case, especially against her former mentor, prosecutor Cy Kenge. Jilly has baggage, the residue of a dark time in a series of foster homes, but that's in the past. Now she's building her own criminal defense firm and making a name for herself as a tough-as-nails lawyer willing to take risks in the courtroom. When the affluent and enigmatic Vincent Trussardi is accused of his wife Laura's murder, Jilly agrees to defend him, despite predictions that the case is a sure loser and warnings from those close to her to stay away from the Trussardi family. Determined to prove everyone wrong, Jilly investigates Laura's death, hoping to discover a shred of evidence that might give the jury a reasonable doubt. Instead, she is confronted by damning evidence and uncooperative witnesses at every turn. Someone isn't telling the truth, but who? With her reputation and Vincent's life on the line, Jilly tries to unravel the web of secrets surrounding Laura's murder. As she digs deeper, she uncovers a startling revelation that will change not only the case, but her life forever. From the gritty streets of Vancouver to the fateful halls of justice, Full Disclosure is a razor-sharp thriller that pulses with authenticity and intrigue.

Professional reviews

"Fans of courtroom drama will find much to relish in this first audiobook from the former chief justice of Canada. The Vancouver setting is fresh, and feisty young lawyer Jilly Truitt has an interesting backstory, including abusive foster homes and a mystery about her parenthood. The plot is full of dirty tricks and secrets, some a little too easy to see coming, but well-leavened with genuine surprises. Narrator Joy Osmanski struggles here at times. Some commonplace pronunciations ("desultory," "decorous") go wrong repeatedly, the accents of Jilly's Liverpudlian assistant and Hildegard the German villainess wander all over Europe, and the victim's beautiful young Italian housekeeper speaks pure spaghetti commercial. Still, Osmanski does many things well, and McLachlin has made a great start. B.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
