Contempt by Michael Cordell is a fabulous contemporary legal thriller that will have you glued and guessing.
Miscarriages of justice have occurred and the truth needs to be uncovered. The tension rises as clearing murky waters begin to uncover a different picture.
The action is fast paced and like any courtroom drama, the reader has to sift through the evidence and decide where the truth lies.
Life is not always black and white but various shades of grey. Underdogs need legal representation concerned with justice and not self-promotion.
All the characters were well drawn, provoking a variety of responses from the reader.
I was completely consumed by Contempt and cannot wait to read more by Michael Cordell. Contempt would make a fabulous Netflix series.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
Julia, thanks for the very kind review. It’s always encouraging to read comments like this, and I appreciate you taking the time to read my novel (especially since you liked it). Stay well.
