Not just another innocent man on death row story. Reed Arvin is an excellent legal writer.
Thomas Dennehy, assistant district attorney in Tennessee, is having a bad week. Wilson Owens, a career criminal he tried and got the death penalty for has finally been executed. Now another prisoner has confessed to the crime saying that he has proof that he committed the crime NOT Wilson. As if it wasn't enough that Dennehy may have killed the wrong man...now he is actively trying a rape/murder case and is again seeking the death penalty. And to top off his week, someone he previously convicted is trying to kill him and all he holds dear.
This book is a real slow mover but it eventually grabs you and keeps you rooted to your seat. An intense fight to the finish with a very very surprising ending.
Excellent. Very good research on the author's part imparts a real feeling of believeablity. Puts me in the mind of Stuart Woods, with the hard hitting lawyer, courtroom drama.
A prosecutor's search for truth. Did he put an innocent man on death row? His search for the truth leads to surprising consequences. " A first rate thriller with depth, original characters and plot twist that really surprise." Phillip Margolin
Great murder mystery in Nashville, TN.
