Full Disclosure by Beverly McLachlin ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

From the former Chief Justice of Canada comes a riveting thriller starring Jilly Truitt, a rising, young defense attorney faced with a case that hits close to home. A searing look at what justice means in the courts and on the streets, Full Disclosure is perfect for fans of Kathy Reichs, Louise Penny, and Lisa Scottoline.

When everyone has something to hide, the truth is the only defense.

There’s nothing Jilly Truitt likes more than winning a case, especially against her former mentor, prosecutor Cy Kenge. Jilly has baggage, the residue of a dark time in a series of foster homes, but that’s in the past. Now she’s building her own criminal defense firm and making a name for herself as a tough-as-nails lawyer willing to take risks in the courtroom.

When the affluent and enigmatic Vincent Trussardi is accused of his wife Laura’s murder, Jilly agrees to defend him, despite predictions that the case is a sure loser and warnings from those close to her to stay away from the Trussardi family. Determined to prove everyone wrong, Jilly investigates Laura’s death, hoping to discover a shred of evidence that might give the jury a reasonable doubt. Instead, she is confronted by damning evidence and uncooperative witnesses at every turn. Someone isn’t telling the truth, but who?

With her reputation and Vincent’s life on the line, Jilly tries to unravel the web of secrets surrounding Laura’s murder. As she digs deeper, she uncovers a startling revelation that will change not only the case, but her life forever.

From the gritty streets of Vancouver to the fateful halls of justice, Full Disclosure is a razor-sharp thriller that pulses with authenticity and intrigue.

About the Author: 

Beverley McLachlin is the former Chief Justice of Canada, the first woman to hold that position.

Full Disclosure is her first novel.


I read this book closer to the book release date but now realized I never wrote a review. I was really excited to read this novel as I love Law Crime/Thrillers and it was set in my home country Canada. What more could one ask for? I was a little disappointed with the plot as some parts were hard to wrap my head around mainly Jully's former client Damon. I did love the setting of Vancouver Canada and the author knows her way around a court house. I would recommend this book as it was a good read from a debut author. I look forward to reading more in the future from Beverly McLachlin as I believe her books will keep getting better. 

I give this book a 3.5 stars out of 5.
