Monday. We got through another Independence Day fireworks holiday. There were big boomers, there were freaked out dogs, there were tired humans.
I'm feeling a little under the weather today. I woke up with a neck-oriented headache. Like a migraine only lower?
It's better now but still feeling a little woozy and tired. I may take the afternoon.
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 their teenage son, Jacob. Then Andy’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 Andy’s own son—shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob. Andy believes in Jacob’s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighbors’ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andy’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?
Published 2012; 431 pages. Just started watching the miniseries of it via Apple+TV starring Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery.
I remember the book being very popular when it came out. I wanted to read the source material before continuing the miniseries.
Nothing on TV tonight. We'll probably watch Antique Roadshow during dinner and hit the bed early.
Have a good day
