The Code of the Hills Nancy Allen read online review & book description:

To uncover the truth, she'll have to break the code of the hills …

In the Missouri Ozarks, some things aren't talked about … even abuse. But prosecutor Elsie Arnold is determined to change that.

When she is assigned to prosecute a high-profile incest case in which a father is accused of abusing his three young daughters, Elsie is ready to become the Ozarks' avenging angel.

But as Elsie sinks her teeth into the case, everything begins to turn sour. The star witness goes missing; the girls refuse to talk about their father, who terrorizes the courtroom from the moment he enters; and Elsie begins to suspect that their tough-as-nails mother has ulterior motives. To make matters worse, Elsie receives gruesome threats from local extremists, warning her to mind her own business.

While Elsie swears not to let a sex offender walk, she realizes the odds—and maybe the town—are against her, and her life begins to crumble. But amidst all of the conflict, the safety of three young girls hangs in the balance ...

A powerful debut, with the haunting atmosphere of Winter's Bone and the page-turning suspense of Alafair Burke's thrillers.

  • Solid story

    By chubschops
    I enjoyed reading this book although it has to be said that the ending was very anti climatic for my taste. I enjoyed the main characters story even with her flaws but really what bothered me was the ending..not to mention..spoiler alert: at the end the author never makes a reference to the fact it was a blessing in disguise for the prosecutor's evidence to be accidentally destroyed (unrealistic as it is) when you learn at the end the evidence was planted anyway. I just felt like it was one sentence the author could have thrown In there bc after all that would have ruined her whole case even after a conviction. Not a big deal but the editor also left a few grammatical errors. But not bad for a book I bought for $2.99!
