Justice. Readers who love complicated plots with plenty of twists are those most likely to enjoy the latest crime novel from Michael Harvey, The Innocence Game. Harvey reprises the protagonist from earlier novels, Michael Kelly, to play a secondary and critical role in this one. Journalism students and their teacher all have backstories that add interest to the plot as they try to dig up evidence of a wrongful conviction to ensure that justice is done. I was thoroughly entertained by this novel, which will appeal in a special way to those in Chicago who admire the ways in which Harvey captures the setting and culture so perfectly.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
