Exoneration is the second book in the Katie Hornsby Legal Thriller series by Tom Bleakley. Katie is a lawyer with four years of experience under her belt. She is well-known among her peers, which is why Dan Douglas comes to her and begs her to take a case. Steve Baron is charged for murdering his wife 7 years ago. A doctor found a muscle-paralyzing drug in his wife’s body, and Steve is the prime suspect for the murder. Terrified, Steve runs away from Guam but he is caught. However, he claims to be innocent and wants a trial. Intrigued and interested, Katie takes up the case to defend Steve and find out how his wife died. But presiding over the case is Judge Mossberg, a man who believes that Steve is guilty. Plus, he seems to have taken an unwanted interest in Katie that she is concerned about. Now, Katie has to prove Steve’s innocence and keep Judge Mossberg away from her. Can she do it?
Exoneration is an interesting mix of a medical and legal thriller. There is a mystery surrounding Steve’s case and an intensity with which it is handled. Author Tom Bleakley builds the story up systematically. In the way the author writes, the flow is great but the sequence is very hard to guess, which makes reading this story even more entertaining. How Katie handles herself is very encouraging and realistic as well. Any woman with an ounce of self-confidence will react the same way she did if they encounter a man like Judge Mossberg. You can tell the author researched a lot to bring this story to us. Tom Bleakley has confidence in the way he writes and allows the reader to feel like a part of Katie’s journey. This is a fast-paced legal thriller that every reader will enjoy.
