About the Author

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

First time in paperback

An innocent man is about to be executed.

Only a guilty man can save him.

 

In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, Travis Boyette abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

Now nine years have passed. Travis has just been paroled in Kansas for a different crime; Donté is four days away from his execution. Travis suffers from an inoperable brain tumor. For the first time in his miserable life, he decides to do what’s right and confess. But how can a guilty man convince lawyers, judges, and politicians that they’re about to execute an innocent man?

Pretty much any legal novel that John Grisham writes makes me happy. This one had me on the edge, trying to predict the ending, and getting it all wrong. His characters are all well-developed with multiple sides on them. I found myself cheering at times in this book and then groaning at parts. The thing that makes this book so great is the fact that this could be the truth! Makes me more aware of those on death row and wanting to be more politiclly involved. A great story and one that makes you want to be an activist.
