Carl Truitt, high-school teacher and ladies’ man, is shocked when FBI agents storm his Atlanta classroom and arrest him for a murder committed in his hometown – 30 years ago. Thea, Carl’s wife of 20 years, like the rest of the community, is in disbelief and sure that this case of mistaken identity will soon be cleared up. But when she visits Carl in jail, he pours out his heart to her and a story echoes from the past that is truly unbelievable.
Undaunted by the circumstances, Thea Truitt stands by her man. Selling their home, Thea follows Carl back to his hometown, where she battles corrupt officials, greedy lawyers, and poverty in an attempt to save him.

Great courtroom drama!
I found myself hanging on every word. I am looking for more from this author!
If you're in pre-school, this narrator is for you. I tried so hard to listen to this book and about 20 minutes into it, I nearly threw my ipod out the window as I was driving on the turnpike. He reads so slow and hesitates after every third word. Seriously, it sounds like he's reading to a group of small children. Very animated in a childish way, not like other books in it's category. It's a shame, this may be a great book but listening to it annoys me to no end. Will try using the audiobook settings on my ipod to speed it up, but he reads that slow that I doubt it will change my mind. Should anything change I will post additional comments.
