Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

Audiobook narrated by Adam Sims

Kept me guessing to the end

My rating:  3 out of 5

A courtroom thriller, where two sisters are accused, but which of them did it?

The emergency services receive two telephone calls, moments apart.  One from Alexandra saying her sister has murdered her father, the other from Sofia saying she has just found her father, who has been murdered by her sister.  But who is telling the truth?  The police arrest them both, and it is up to the defence lawyers to work it out. 

The main characters are the defence lawyers, each sister employing their own lawyer,  and a sinister character referred to as “She”,  who is the murderer, but whose identity remains undisclosed until …  

This thriller certainly kept me guessing right up to the end.   I listened to this as an audio book and it was well narrated and the plot was easy to follow despite my picking it up and putting it down with days intervening imbetween.

3*s from me as this was good entertainment, but I never got very involved with the characters. For me it would have been better in book format (rather than audio) , as there were times when I wanted to flick back to check something.  However I enjoyed it and recommend it to lovers of courtroom thrillers.
