The Holdout by Graham Moore

Title: The Holdout
Author: Graham Moore
 Publication Date: February 2020
In this twisty tale from Moore (The Sherlockian), the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of The Imitation Game, young juror Maya Seale is convinced that African American high school teacher Bobby Nock is innocent of killing the wealthy white female student with whom he appears to have been involved and persuades her fellow jurors likewise. Ten years later, a true-crime.

Nice twist and definitely a page turner. It might not be one of those thrilling books that kept me late up at night but it was decently faced paced and intense. The ending was actually a downfall for me, because I was already having a wild guess of what could have happened with Jessica Silver. So, I guess the story did not surprise me that much. It was unrealistic for me.
