Summary from Goodreads:

It’s just a normal morning when Anna's husband announces that he's leaving her for her best friend and taking their two daughters with him.

With her safe, comfortable world shattered, Anna distracts herself with someone else's story: a true-crime podcast. That is until she recognizes the name of one of the victims and becomes convinced that only she knows what really happened.

With nothing left to lose, she throws herself into investigating the case. But little does she know, Anna's past and present lives are about to collide, sending everything she has worked so hard to achieve into freefall.

Conviction is the compelling and unique new thriller from multiple award-winner and author of The Long Drop, Denise Mina.

I picked up this book as part of my Scottish challenge. It didn't disappoint. Not only is poor Anna's life a mess, but her husband has run off with her best friend and took their two children with them. How could things get any worse? Anna is also obsessed with true crime podcasts, but who isn't these days. When Anna realizes that someone she used to know is the center of one of her beloved podcasts, she starts to investigate on her own. This opens up a can of worms.

I really enjoyed this story. It really was many stories weaved together under the cover of a fantastic book.
