This legal thriller is long on legal and short on thrill. If you read Supreme Court opinions all the way through, you're probably getting more action and suspense than you can expect from this one. But if you go in for jury duty hoping you'll get chosen, this is the book for you.

I have mixed feelings on this book. While it does provide a thoughtful, heart-wrenching view on capital punishment, I thought the story itself could use some trimming. This book could have a used a good editor to cut out some of the excess that was not necessary. Overall it was okay.

This was by far, one of the best books I've read in quite a while. Conviction addresses not only the controversial issue of capital punishment, but race and our judicial system as well.

"Conviction" raises a lot of questions about the death penalty and is insightful as to what Patterson's views on the subject are. But the plot could have been better, since the basic story of the innocence or guilt of someone accused of a capital crime has been done many times. In fact, this novel is similar to John Grisham's "The Chamber". "Conviction" was much more technical and contained more legal jargon, which did not add to the story. I liked "Conviction but "The Chamber" was definitely a more suspenseful and character driven book.
