Publisher's Summary

Attorney Lauren Atkinson has spent her career defending death-row criminals. When a murder hits close to home and clues tie her to an old, forgotten case, Lauren must stop at nothing to find the killer.

With her marriage crumbling and her life in tatters, she begins to question everything she has been fighting for. Will her views on the death penalty change once the killer is revealed?

    "WOW"

    I love this story. Lauren, Michael, and Gary are such complex wonderful characters and the narration is just fabulous. The pros and cons of the death penalty is constantly argued in our society and this tale makes the reader face and evaluate both sides of the issue. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...

    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book to listen to!A girl is kidnapped and murdered.Her killer is sent to jail and sits on death row.Our main character,an attorney,works to get prisoners with death row sentences lightened to life in prison.Soon her home life and work life are intertwined.
    Rosemary Benson gives a great performance narrating this one.

    Story
    "A different view on violent crime"

    This book brought out different emotions in me. It is about the death penalty. Personally, I think the death penalty should be enforced and in a timely manner. But this review doesn’t go into my own feelings.
    The story was very interesting and kept me looking at my own beliefs. I thought the detail was perfect, the narrator was very good, drawing me in enough to keep listening without moving on to another book. The characters, especially the victim, could have been developed more, but the intention of the story was to show the perpetrator as someone that had a relevant story. The victim’s family was a determining factor in the outcome. Many convicted criminals’ sentence is somewhat determined by a “victim’s statement” and, for the most part, that is the way it should be.
    I don’t like to describe books in detail, but I would recommend this to anyone interested in crime and punishment. There is not a lot of time devoted to the courtroom. I liked this different point of view. The characters and the crime and the outcome are the important parts of the story.
