The explosive new thriller from international bestseller John Grisham. He was framed for murder. Now he needs a miracle. 22 years ago Quincy Miller was sentenced to life without parole. He was accused of killing Keith Russo, a lawyer in a small Florida town. But there were no reliable witnesses and little motive. Just the fact that Russo had botched Quincy's divorce case, that Quincy was black in a largely all-white town and that a blood-splattered torch was found in the boot of Quincy's car. A torch he swore was planted.

"this is Grisham at his passionate best, conveying every ounce of his anger at the corruption behind the law"

This is inspired by Grisham’s experience as a director of the Innocence Project in the U.S., which has secured the release of 367 innocent people, 21 of them on death row.

It tells the story of lawyer Cullen Post, who is determined to exonerate his clients for crimes they did not commit, including Quincy Miller... Post’s fight for his client is exquisitely captured — this is Grisham at his passionate best, conveying every ounce of his anger at the corruption behind the law. It is his finest book for some time. Do not miss it.
