Ethan “Hutch” Hutchinson is shocked when one of his old college friends is accused of a senseless and brutal murder. As the trial begins, Hutch starts to realise there are unsettling questions about the case, and he begins to investigate. He soon discovers some very dark secrets that could leave Hutch and many others at risk of losing their lives.
Trial Junkies reads like a very modern version of the classic courtroom thriller. Some of the more old-fashioned elements of the genre are swept aside in favour of a fast-paced novel that reflects modern sensibilities and the realities of life in the twenty-first century. And the central mystery remains well-constructed throughout, leading to a genuine sense of tension.
That Trial Junkies works as well as it does is largely due to the fact that Robert Gregory Browne creates some very strong characters. Hutch, in particular, is engaging and believable, but the entire cast of characters in the novel works well, helping to make this a memorable and well-paced book.
