Sin in The Big Easy
Sin in the Big Easy by Elizabeth McCourt starts out with the main character, Abby, a new assistant D.A., on her morning run discovering a rape victim (Darcy) and helping her to get medical help while everyone else until that point had just walked by. Not only that, but later Abby convinces Darcy to press charges.
Unfortunately, this book didn’t have one main plot from start to finish. At first, it seems that Sin in the Big Easy could be a good courtroom drama. But then Abby receives very tragic news from her mother that her father (diagnosed with cancer) has committed suicide. You expect her to grieve and go home, but essentially it’s a completely different book. Additionally, the reader gets to find out about Abby’s past before she moved to New Orleans, something that even now she hasn’t forgiven herself for. To top it all off, her two ex-boyfriends were involved in that, one of whom has only recently come out of jail.
Overall, there is almost nothing pleasant to say about the main character. Even despite her lack of professional experience, she was too naive and trusted way too fast every new piece of information she was given.
