What a fabulous and deeply compelling book! I loved Innocent and found myself absolutely gripped by the story as it began to unravel.
My opinion on poor Tristan changed so many times and I absolutely loved how Erin Kinsley was able to make me continually review my thoughts surrounding different characters.
I could easily see this being adapted as a mini-series along the lines of Broadchurch or similar, it would break up very well into episodes! Considering the story was based around the murder of a hugely popular family man, I actually found Innocent to be a really nice read!
I thought the wide variety of differing characters was marvellous, this added such depth to the story and made my brain have to work hard to sift through all of the evidence.
My biggest takeaway from this book is that there is an app you can use to get Alexa to record conversations! Is it true I wonder? I gasped at that bit! (I never give spoilers so I can’t reveal any more than that.)
