Book Review - The Orchid Murder: Untangling a Web of Unsolved Murders and Legal Malpractice by Christine Hunt...
The Orchid Murder: Untangling a Web of Unsolved Murders and Legal Malpractice by Christine Hunt is a truly interesting read about one man's journey to clear his name of a murder he did not commit. Represented by an incompetent lawyer during the initial trial, this story goes through the steps taken by a newly hired legal firm in clearing his name.
Having very limited legal understanding outside of the odd crime novel and TV shows, I found this book very easy to read. The author was able to keep me engaged and I found the storyline very interesting. I did struggle at times to keep up with who was who, and some of the legal jargon, but it was a truly enjoyable read.
I would recommend this book to anyone who longs for a "deep" read; something to dive into and be intrigued by.
This book is available for purchase at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle format.
