Review: Crime of Privilege By: Walter Walker

Crime of PrivilegeCrime of Privilege by Walter Walker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Is the greatest crime silence?
When the past comes out to haunt us, where we once stood silent, will we have the courage years later to stand up for what is right?

George Becket knows the Gregory family and a few of their darkest secrets. He knows what they are capable of and at what lengths they go to keep things quiet and make it disappear. It should come to no surprise that years after a rape, murder from years ago reaches his attention and leads him back to that family.
George has found himself a pawn between two rich and powerful families - the Gregorys, who have a Senator to list on their resume and the Powells, who have powerful business and a trained ex special forces man, Roland Andrews. The rape he witnessed was that of Powell's daughter and years since he has been watched and manipulated, though it was the Gregorys that gave him his job as ADA in a small cape town.
A young town girl is found dead on the green of a golf course. For years this murder was not truly investigated - that is until George Becket meets with her father and begins to unravel the secrets of long ago.

I give this book 3.5 stars out of 5. I loved the story, I found that I couldn't put the book down - with the twists, turns, dangers, and secrets unfolding, but the main character was two dimensional, at times unlikable. This is a great beach read - you will not want to put it down, for when you enter between the gates of the wealthy beneath the exterior there is something much much deeper you will want to uncover.
