‘Full Disclosure’ by Beverley McLachlin

This was not a great read, but interesting because of who wrote it. Beverley McLachlin is the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, so yes, she knows her stuff when it comes to legal matters! I did like her writing style which  featured short snappy sentences and chapters that gave the book a nice pace, but it lacked enough surprising reveals and the outcome was blandly predictable. I can’t help compare with Kathy Reichs who is a forensic anthropologist who writes murder mysteries on the side. How do these people find the time? The TV series Bones was based on her books. Reichs’ books are a bit formulaic but always full of surprises and intrigue, also in the relationships of recurring characters in the series. Louise Penny is my favourite Canadian author for mysteries!
