Presumed Guilty by Tess Gerritsen: My honest thoughts on the book’s plot, characters, and overall impact.

Well, guys, I just got done reading Presumed Guilty, which was penned by Tess Gerritsen, and I thought that I should share my opinion regarding the novel with all of you. The plot follows Miranda Wood, who stumbles upon her former lover and a wealthy, bigamous killer, Richard Tremain, murdered in her bed with the murder weapon being her knife.

This shocking scene makes the book exciting, as Miranda becomes a suspect in the murder, and various events occur.

As if things were going wrong, Miranda’s bail was posted by an unknown person, prompting her to look more like a guilty person. This mysterious benefactor leaves Miranda questioning whether it is indeed a kind gesture intended to help her or a plan concocted with ill intentions aimed at tricking her into becoming a pawn in a game of cat and mouse. The story untangles itself among the world of shadows and deceit of a man named Richard Tremain; here, it is hard to determine who the guilty ones are.

Even though Miranda is arrested and asked to leave her job as a detective, she remains steadfast in her resolve to find the actual culprit. This is a classic tale of the dangers of lying—the lies she now faces are as deadly as the enemies hunting her, and she soon discovers that she might find it even harder to survive than finding her innocence. I enjoyed the suspense and the; this book provided an excellent read, one that gripped me from beginning until end.

Probably one of the most successful Stanford alumni, Tess Gerritsen, the internationally bestselling author, began her writing career circumstantially after getting her M. D. from UCSF. She has authored 32 suspense novels, with “Presumed Guilty” being bought by Amazon Studios.


Presumed guilty – this is how Tess Gerritsen’s novel is actually called; however, one can tell from the title alone that it is a thriller, and this is indeed so. As it reveals a dramatic story with thought-out protagonists, it tops the list of ‘must-reads’ for those who prefer to read suspense and mystery. I would recommend the series, especially for its gripping nature that holds the reader into one continuous read without the desire to put the book down.
