I have read all the Tracy
Crosswhite books by Robert
Dugoni that have been published and I really like the
series. So, when I saw this book by Robert Dugoni I
just had to read it while I wait for the next Tracy
Peter Donley has been working for three years as an
attorney at his uncle Lou's firm. And, now he is thinking
of taking a better-paid job so that he better can support
his wife and young son. But, then his uncle has a heart
attack and is too sick to defend Father Thomas Martin who
is accused of murdering a young man. So, Donley steps in
and take the case, and by doing so will he discover that
some people will do anything to bury the truth.
I think that THE 7THE CANON is an excellent thriller. The
story takes place in 1987 and I was thrilled to read a
book that takes place in the 80s, before all modern
inventions like cell phones, etc. It's not that far back
in time, but I quite enjoy reading books from that time.
Probably because I'm a child of the 80s. THE 7THE CANON
is a story about injustice and corruption, always a
fascinating subject. One can't help wonder through the
book why some of the characters in the book seem so
desperate to get Father Thomas Martin convicted. What are
they hiding? Will Donley be able to free Father Thomas
Martin, and is he really innocent?
The story is both interesting and thrilling to read.
Donley quickly became a favorite of mine, he has a dark
past, but a bright future, if he survives the ordeals in
this book. Another character that I quickly started to
like was private detective Frank Ross. I think adding
Frank Ross to the story was a good move. Donley and Ross
are a good team and as they work together to find out
more about the murder they also discover more about each
other. Both men have had tragedies in their lives and
that link them together.
THE 7THE CANON is a perfect to read if you like
thrillers, and if you like me love the 80s will you be
thrilled to travel back two decades to together with
Donley and Ross fight for justice!
A riveting new legal thriller from the bestselling author
of My Sister’s Grave.
In San Francisco’s seamy Tenderloin district, a teenage
street hustler has been murdered in a shelter for boys. And
the dedicated priest who runs the struggling home stands
accused. But despite damning evidence that he’s a killer—and
worse—Father Thomas Martin stands by his innocence. And
attorney Peter Donley stands with him.
For three years Donley has cut his legal teeth in his
uncle’s tiny, no-frills firm, where people come before
profits. Just as Donley is poised to move on to a lucrative
dream job, the shocking case lands in his lap, and he must
put his future on hold while putting his courtroom skills to
the test. But a ruthless DA seeking headlines and a brutal
homicide cop bent on vengeance have their own agendas. Now,
as he unearths the dirty secrets surrounding the case,
Donley must risk his neck to save his client’s life…and
expose the face of true evil.
