    Inhaltsangabe

    He was framed for murder.

    Now he needs someone on the outside to save him.

    For 22 years Quincy Miller has sat on Death Row without friends, family or legal representation. He was accused of killing Keith Russo, a lawyer in a small Florida town. But there were no witnesses and no motive. Just the fact that Quincy was black in an all-white town and that a blood-splattered torch was found in the boot of his car. A torch he swore was planted. A torch that conveniently disappeared from evidence just before his trial. 

    It made no difference. The police photographs of the torch were enough. In the eyes of the law Quincy is guilty and, no matter how often he protests his innocence, his punishment will be death. 

    Finally, after 22 years, an innocence lawyer and minister, Cullen Post, takes on his case. Post has exonerated eight men in the last ten years. He intends Quincy will become number nine.

    But there were powerful and ruthless people behind Russo's murder. They prefer that an innocent man goes to his death than one of them. They killed one lawyer 22 years ago, and they'll kill another one without a second thought.

    Must read! One of the most intriguing novels I have read in years. Brilliantly structured and told, and really making you think. Do not stop writing, Mr Grisham!

    Standard

    J.G is always good. The content of this audiobook is of course good. Yes, it is based on a true life story. It is impressive to find out some of the activities that take place behind the scenes adding up to a hearing and eventual trial. However, when adding everything up and puting all factors together, specially if any type of Cartel is involved, the Story progressed as if on rails, with hardly any hardships nor suspense throughout. Accustomed to more thrill, suspense, twists and intellectual challenges this audiobook remains shallow without meeting my expectations. Sorry to say: "lukewarm " at best. The personifications of the narrator were quite good. Nevertheless, He added to mainly keep the monotony going with hardly any highlights. Simply put: never reached me; kept on waiting the whole time. All of a sudden the book was over.
