The 7th Canon Robert Dugoni

The 7th CanonThe 7th Canon by Robert Dugoni

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.
This was a compelling legal thriller, up there with Scott Turow and John Grisham. Peter Donley was immensely likeable and you could relate to the problems he tussled with. He does everything he can within the law (just) to help his client Father Martin, who is steadfast in his innocence. The story gathers pace as it hurtles to the end.
A clever, entertaining read. Robert Dugoni is fast becoming a force in the legal fiction genre.
