Abby Endicott is chief of the District Attorney’s homicide unit in Boston where she investigates and prosecutes the city’s most dangerous killers A member of Mission Hill’s elite and a graduate of the Winsor school and then Harvard Law the prosecutor’s office is not the prestigious job that would have been expected of her She has been known to change into an evening gown amidst b. Abby Endicott is a prosecutor that is the chief of the District Attorney’s homicide unit in Boston When she gets a call of a homicide she arrives at the scene to find that the victim is fellow prosecutor Tim Mooney Abby and Tim have been close for years close enough that the two had been having a secret affair even after Tim had married Finding that Tim's latest case that the trial was about to start for was for a man that had been involved in Abby's best friend from high school being murdered Abby insists that she be put on the case to finally get a conviction Sure that the defendant is also involved in Tim's murder Abby puts everything into the case so the defendant will not get away with murder again Mission HIll seems to be the first book in a new series by Pamela Wechsler featuring Abby Endicott Abby is one of those somewhat flawed characters as she has all kinds of hangs up herself but she is a strong person when it comes to her job and making sure justice is served I was a bit back and forth on whether I liked Abby herself or not She's from a rich family and regularly listing how much she spends on this or that She has affairs with married men all the while having a loving boyfriend that she doesn't seem too attached to And she's a bit closed off citing things like anxiety and trust issues but the saving grace was she was good with her job and working at this low paying position against the wishes of her rich family which made her a bit likable in my opinion At the end of this read Abby had grown on me and being a sucker for a good legalcourtroom thriller I'd definitely check out where this series heads in any future books I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews please visit
