Rezensionen
A spicy stew of intrigue replete with buried secrets and unexpected motives. The New York Times Book Review

Wow! I loved The Holdout, in which author Graham Moore does the impossible, creating a page-turning legal thriller with a twisty and absolutely riveting plot, as well as raising profound and thought-provoking questions about the jury system and modern justice. All that, plus a strong and compelling female heroine in lawyer Maya Seale, whom you ll root for as the tables turn against her and she finds herself behind bars, with everything on the line. You won t be able to put this one down! Lisa Scottoline, #1 bestselling author of Someone Knows
 
Graham Moore s heart beats on every page of The Holdout, a murder trial as only he could have written it: secrets and lies, mysteries upon mysteries, and a cast of characters each with their own dubious motives. This is a tense, emotionally charged, scary-good, standout read that hooked me till the last page. Caroline Kepnes, author of You
