The Evidence Against You

The Evidence Against You


It's the day her father will be released from jail. Izzy English has every reason to feel conflicted - he's the man who gave her a childhood filled with happy memories. But he has also just served seventeen years for the murder of her mother.

Now, Izzy's father sends her a letter. He wants to talk, to defend himself against each piece of evidence from his trial. But should she give him the benefit of the doubt? Or is her father guilty as charged, and luring her into a trap?

Our Review

In all honesty I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading The Evidence Against You. I find that this kind of book can go either way but this one was very good.

Izzy English is just eighteen years old when her father is sent to jail for the murder of her mother. Her grandparents are adamant he is guilty and refuse to discuss the case any further. Izzy, for her part, would much rather not know the finer details of the case. She can’t pretend it never happened though because everybody on the Isle of Wight knows the details of the murder.

When her father is out of prison she knows he will come looking for her and when he does she is not surprised when he tries to convince her he is innocent. What surprises her is that she isn’t sure whether to believe him or not.

Gabe English is much changed but he is still her father and Izzy can’t help but investigate.

The Evidence Against You examines the vast range of emotions someone in her situation would experience whilst grieving the loss of both of her parents, not to mention the emotions she would face at the possibility he wasn’t actually guilty.

I was there alongside Izzy on every single step of her journey. I felt the fear and the uncertainty and the need to prove her father innocent. 

A great book.
