Mr. Grisham, you've done it again. I don't think I've enjoyed a book as much as I did the early ones lately, but this one got consumed in two days; no dishes wash, dusting done, dog didn't get walked kind of book. Keith Shroeder is a minister who is visited by Travis Boyette, a serial rapist with an inoperable brain tumor and a crime on his conscience. A man in the great state of Texas is due to be put to death for the crime that's been worrying him. The story is that of Keith and Travis, and Donte, the man set for execution in 48 hours, his lawyer and many interesting minor characters. All come together for a gripping story that teaches the reader about the death penalty, showing how it might go horribly wrong. Will he convince Boyette to confess? Will it matter to the prosecutors? Read it and see. Five stars without a doubt.
