Doubling Up is a classical trial/procedural novel, if you have to stay to the author’s bio, he is a practicing lawyer, and indeed, the part related to the preparation and trial itself is probably the best one. The author also knows about the risk that homophobia seeps in the layers of justice; this side of the novel is not overplayed, making it too emotional to be true, it’s instead dealt with an aseptic way, making it realistic, during the evolution but also in the end.
The ending is also something that maybe will let some readers hanging, but it’s indeed very true to all the novel. It’s not a cataclysm, it’s not the novelization of the true, it’s more what probably happens in most cases, waiting for years for the right resolution of a trial.
