9781504694810: The Ex: A Novel

Olivia Randall is one of New York City's best criminal defense lawyers. When she hears that her former fiance, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide -- and that one of the victims was connected to his wife's murder -- there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him -- and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

About the Author:

Alafair Burke is a graduate of Stanford Law School and a former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon. She is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure. She lives in New York City and spends too much time on Facebook and Twitter, but has no plans to quit.

Review:

“Riveting.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Burke tells a compelling legal thriller that will have readers baffled until the final reveal.... Burke knows how to write, and Olivia Randall is one of her most authentic characters. No one would object if this is the start of a new series.” (Associated Press)

“Intriguing, suspenseful, compelling, insightful, surprising, and thoroughly satisfying — The Ex is a great read.” (Chris Pavone, The Accident and The Expats)

“Strong characters and a plot that’s handled deftly, despite its complexities, show Burke at the top of her game here. This is a compelling legal thriller with a strong emotional component grounded in a solid rational base, with a final twist to boot.” (Library Journal, starred review)

“Riveting.... Burke’s protagonist, Olivia Randall, is a complicated woman with legal skills to match the Lincoln Lawyer.... Olivia proves she’s at the top of her game as a criminal defense attorney. And with her pacey plot and fascinating characters, Burke proves she’s at the top of hers.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

“With an all-too-real mass shooting in a richly-observed Manhattan as its springboard, The Ex is an expertly crafted, intricately woven novel that is as emotionally complex as it is riveting.” (Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia and Where They Found Her)

“Enjoyable.... There’s a great and satisfying surprise.... Worth the time.” (USA Today, three stars)

“Features smooth, engaging writing; a sharp, funny edge; and characters worth investing in. Burke has created some memorable female protagonists over the years, but Olivia might be the cream of the crop.” (Kirkus)

“Gripping.... Olivia makes an appealingly bold protagonist.... Burke keeps the suspense high throughout, prying open mysteries of relationships and perception.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Briskly told and packed with plot, The Ex rocks. . . . A nifty bit of fine suspense.” (New York Journal of Books)
