Summary

EL LIBRO EN QUE SE BASA LA SERIE DE APPLE TV.

En defensa de Jacob
 es un magistral thriller legal y una intriga psicológica sobre la devoción paterna

Cuando descubren el cadáver de Ben Rifkin, de tan solo catorce años, en medio del bosque, con tres puñaladas en el pecho, la comunidad de Newton, un elegante y apacible barrio residencial donde hasta entonces todo era una foto perfecta de la vida acomodada, pierde la inocencia de golpe. El ayudante del fiscal del distrito, Andy Barber, se hace cargo del caso, al que se le da la máxima prioridad. Sin embargo, cuando su hijo Jacob, compañero de clase de Ben, es acusado del crimen, Andy será apartado del caso y verá cómo el mundo que tanto esfuerzo le ha costado construir empieza a tambalearse. 

En defensa de Jacob es un magistral thriller legal y una intriga psicológica sobre la devoción paterna, que plantea hasta qué punto los padres están dispuestos a conocer realmente quiénes son sus hijos y a actuar en consecuencia.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A legal thriller that’s comparable to classics such as Scott Turow’s Presumed Innocent . . . tragic and shocking.”—Associated Press

SOON TO BE AN ORIGINAL STREAMING SERIES • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Entertainment Weekly • Boston Globe • Kansas City Star

Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney for two decades. He is respected. Admired in the courtroom. Happy at home with the loves of his life: his wife, Laurie, and their teenage son, Jacob. Then Andy’s quiet suburb is stunned by a shocking crime: a young boy stabbed to death in a leafy park. And an even greater shock: The accused is Andy’s own son—shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob.

Andy believes in Jacob’s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighbors’ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andy’s family. It is the ultimate test for any parent: How far would you go to protect your child? It is a test of devotion. A test of how well a parent can know a child. For Andy Barber, a man with an iron will and a dark secret, it is a test of guilt and innocence in the deepest sense.

How far would you go?
