"John Grisham had better look to his laurels--there's a new writer of legal thrillers in town." Richard A. Lupoff, author of The Classic Car Killer
Howard Henley is not a killer. That seems obvious to lawyer Janet Moodie when she's called in to work his appeal. Her new client was convicted of arranging the shooting of a drug dealer, but the man who pulled the trigger has always said Henley had nothing to do with it. So why is Henley the one on death row?
Janet's new case takes her from the desperate world of prison gangs, where men are murdered as an initiation rite, to the courtroom, where a mental illness might mean the difference between life and death. Can she convince a judge of her client's innocence before it's too late?
