an advanced copy novel

Crime of Privilege by Walter Walker

Crime of Privilege

By: Walter Walker

Genre: fiction/mystery

Pages: 432

Published: 2013

Read: August

2 out of 5

This novel starts out strong; the premise disturbing, but exciting – a rape of one young girl, a murder of another and a rich powerful family covering their tracks.  I thought this book held a lot of promise and would be fantastic. However, about a quarter of the way through it started to d-r-a-g and you have already met so many characters some get lost in the mix. Plus, there are a lot more characters to be introduced so the confusion continues.  I also felt the book never really “solved” the case, but rather assumptions were made. I gave it a 2 star rating versus a 1 star because it did hold my interest enough to read the entire novel, in hopes to see resolution. Yet, another downfall was that I enjoy mysteries that include an unexpected twist and this one never came close.
