This summer, readers are going to be inundated by thrillers hoping to catch your attention and wallet. But which book to buy? Which thriller do you want keeping you up reading late into the night?
BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge suggests C.E. Tobisman. A Los Angeles, appellate attorney, turned sleuth-writer has created your new favorite heroine, Caroline Auden. The closer she gets to justice, the further she gets from the law.
FYI: If you’re familar with C.E. Tobisman’s work, I’m sure you’re thrilled we’re featuring her on Thoughts on This ‘n That. If not, keep this in mind, DOUBT has over 27-hundred reviews on Amazon with a solid 4 rating. I think you might want to start reading … now!
In DOUBT (Thomas& Mercer), when Caroline Auden lands a job at a top LA law firm, she’s excited for the challenge, and grateful for the chance to put her shady past as a computer hacker behind. Right away, her new boss asks her to find out whether a popular GMO causes healthy people to get sick. Caroline is only supposed to dig up the data and report the numbers up the ladder. But her tech background and intuition take her on an unexpected path. When she discovers a link between the death of a prominent scientist and the shadowy biotech giant, she suspects something illegal is going on and she’s determined to expose the truth before more lives are lost. But in the process she finds herself in the crosshairs. The clock is ticking and thousands of lives are on the line – including her own.
Published just yesterday, Tobisman’s sequel to DOUBT, PROOF is another go-to thriller this summer. BuzzFeed writes, “Captivating characters combine with a riveting plot to make PROOF a must-read crime-solving mystery that you won’t be able to put down..”
In PROOF, Caroline is making every effort to keep her struggling law practice afloat and her paranoia in check. Still haunted by the betrayal that forced her to leave a prestigious law firm, her grandmother dies, and Caroline loses the only constant in her life. Grief soon turns to suspicion when she discovers her grandmother left her entire estate, including the family’s sole heirloom, a valuable antique watch, to a charity called Oasis Care. On the surface, Oasis helps society’s outcasts, like Caroline’s alcoholic, homeless uncle. But as she digs deeper, Caroline uncovers a sinister plot that sends her running for her life on the dangerous streets of Los Angeles.
Plunged into the underbelly of the city, operating without a phone or a computer, Caroline finds sanctuary with her homeless uncle and a ragtag group of outcasts while building evidence for her case. As she sifts through the shadowy world of the Goliath nonprofit, Caroline is also forced to confront her own dark shadows, casting doubt on her ability, and her sanity.
For fifteen years, C.E. Tobisman has been an appellate attorney, handling cases in the California courts of appeal and Supreme Court. After graduating from UC Berkeley and attending law school there, she moved to Los Angeles, where she now lives with her wife and their three children. In addition to DOUBT and PROOF, Tobisman is also the author of INSIDE THE LOOP, published by Emet Comics.
