Today in January Magazine’s crime fiction section, Jim Winter reviews Easy Innocence by Libby Fischer Hellmann. Says Winter:
Cam Jordan doesn’t see a high-school hazing when her fellow female students dump a bucket of fish guts over Sara Long’s head. He sees a princess. Then he sees the princess killed. By the time it’s all over, Jordan finds himself holding a bloody baseball bat, wondering if he was the one who did her in.The full review is here.
The police don’t wonder. To them, Jordan -- an autistic man with a dubious sex-offender status -- is the perfect suspect in Sara Long’s murder. In fact, the Illinois State’s Attorney is hell-bent on convicting him, and thereby getting this case off the books. Yet something is clearly wrong when former Chicago police detective Georgia Davis is brought in to investigate all these doings.
