Such is the premise of Retribution C J Townsend an Assistant District Attorney in Miami was raped and tortured in 1988 while still in law school in New York by an assailant she knows only as The Clown He left her for dead; she survived and a nervous breakdown and twelve years of therapy later she's relocated to south Florida changed her name and managed to erase her past Then a man is pulled over for a routine traffic stop and in the trunk of his car is found the tenth victim of the serial killer known as Cupid Many of the details of the case are all too well known to Townsend for they remind her of her own violation so many years before Then in court she sees a distinctive scar her rapist had and knows she's prosecuting her own assailant but that can't sway her niggling doubts about whether he really is CupidHoffman an ex Florida ADA herself begging the autobiographical uestion of course delivers the goods in her debut novel She gives us a well drawn and engaging cast of characters a fabulous plot and almost perfect pacing The novel rarely slows and when it does it picks back up again promptly While it lacks the onion like layers of mystery of say Erin Hart's recent debut Haunted Ground Hoffman zeroes in on the simpler mystery she supplies us here and relies on the ethical subtexts for layering; when the prosecutor knows the defendant in such a way does the case become prosecution or persecution? And how will keeping all the necessary secrets affect Townsend's life and the lives of those around her especially in a case where everyone knows the media will be digging so far into it that someone's bound to turn something up?It's probably not the greatest of form to describe a book with a January release date as great summer reading but that's exactly what Retribution is It's got the feel of a literary Law and Order episode even so that LO staff writer Giles Blunt's novels; we see both the police and the prosecution side of the case there's all the courtroom drama one could ask for all the twists and turns to keep the suspense in gear until the final pages The ending does go a bit over the top But it's such a fine rollercoaster ride we'll forgive Ms Hoffman the stock serial killer climax Oh and one other great thing about those twists and turns just when you think you've figured out the end of the novel Hoffman springs what you just figured out on you in the next few pages The revelations of various bits of information throughout are as well constructed as they are in a Hideo Nakata film leaving the reader wondering what's coming around the next turnA fine debut Jilliane Hoffman is going places
