Mission HillBeen a horrific murder but is vague about the specifics When she arrives at the crime scene and discovers the identity of the victim Abby knows the terror and tragedy are only beginningIn Mission Hill debut novelist Pamela Wechsler delivers a gripping and very human portrayal of a woman who will stop at nothing to find the truth even if it challenges everything she believes about justice First Sentence I’m in bed silently reciting their names Prosecution attorney Abby Endicott learns a colleague has been killed execution style by gangbanger Orlando Jones Abbie takes on the case in part as she blames him for the murder of her friend many years ago If she loses not only does he walk but she could lose her license to practice law Pamela Wechler’s legal and screenwriting background are apparent from the first paragraph She certainly knows who to capture the reader’s attention as well as touching one’s emotions Yet the explanation makes sense as do the geographic references Our introduction into Abby’s background is handled early and uickly The relationship between Abby and her lover Ty is a nice counterpoint to the case That it’s not a perfect relationship is a refreshing change Wechler’s voice is crisp and real—“The sleek high tech building offers one stop shopping; it houses the homicide unit the crime lab the ballistics lab the identification unit and the fugitive suad It’s a kind of like a Neiman Marcus for prosecutors” For those who know or even want to visit Boston Wechler describes the city very well good and bad as well as its politics and the project known as “The Big Dig” There are interesting details about which one wouldn’t normally think—“A hospital emergency is a cheater’s purgatory Spouses and girlfriends rush to be by their man’s side only to discover that he has another significant other—or others There’s nothing that a bed bound patient can do to prevent the encounters” The author’s wry humor helps offset the drama nicely—“A dirty mop and bucket are in the corner next to an overflowing trash barrel The order of grease is so strong I feel like I need to go to Elizabeth Grady and have my pores extracted I was hungry when I walked in here I’d planned to get a burger and a bag of fries for the road Now I’m seriously considering becoming a vegetarian” However fewer product placements wouldn’t have gone amiss There is a very good escalation in the seriousness of the plot but it also goes a bit over the top For being a legal mystery there could have been time spent in the courtroom “Mission Hill” does have some weaknesses but it’s a very credible first effort It will be interesting to see how the series progressesMISSION HILL Legal Thriller Abby Endicott Boston Cont Good Wechsler Pamela – 1st in series Minotaur Books – Mar 2017
