This was a good fast paced book. The main character, a reporter, was funny, and always getting himself in trouble with women and at his job. He curses a blue streak, but the plot was great, and it kept me laughing. He is a reporter in a race against time to keep an innocent man on death row from dying. Not your usual set up, and very enjoyable.

A mystery/suspense with a newspaper reporter becomes interested in a death row case. Sometimes the book is hopeful, sometimes it's incredibly bleak. Plus the preparations for the "death chamber" are kind of unsettling, but well-writtern. I will definitely be looking for more books from Klavan.

In the heat of the city, a man is out of time: speeding in a beat-up Ford Tempo, blasting easy-listening music. Reporter Steve Everett drinks too much, makes love to his boss's wife and has just stumbled upon a shocking truth: a convicted killer is about to be executed for a crime he didn't commit.

In the cold confines of Death Row, Frank Beachum is also out of time. Ready to say good-bye to the wife and child he loves and hello to the God he still believes in, Beachum knows he did not kill a convenience store clerk six years ago. But in a few hours- if Steve Everett can't find the evidence to stop it- a needle is going to pierce Frank Beachums skin.
