#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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?

Review:

"The Confession is the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense story that demands to be inhaled as quickly as possible. But it's also a superb work of social criticism in the literary troublemaker tradition of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle....Brilliant" Washington Post

Review:

"[John Grisham] is a master at pacing....The book starts fast and finishes faster." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Packed with tension, legal roadblocks and shocking revelations." USA Today

Amazing book! When a fictional book makes you re-think the current, real life status quo - it's a book that I consider amazing. This book made me look more critically at our death penalty laws. The read was fast, and kept me off guard all the way through. LOVED IT!
