Publisher's Summary

In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm: 26-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it all for a death-row killer and an impossible case. Maximum Security Unit, Mississippi State Prison: Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of chances - except for one: the young, liberal Chicago lawyer who just happens to be his grandson. While the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while the protesters gather and the TV cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes, to save his client. For between the 2 men is a chasm of shame, family lies and secrets - including one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's life...or cost Adam his.

    "Michael Beck is a superb narrator!"
    Any additional comments?

    Michael Beck is simply the perfect narrator for Southern Grisham. It is a real pleasure to listen to his various accents. Bravo!

    "Reflective"

    A riveting reflection of life from many angles. Also, a deep and disturbing debate on the continued use of the death penalty in the USA.
    So much is political one sees that justice is not always the goal.

    "Not his best."

    I was pretty disappointed. Maybe I'm just used to his books being so awesome. The story line was pretty bland.

    "A Nonirritating Narration"

    Michael Beck is the best narrator I've heard in a long time. Very enjoyable.

    J. Grisham, once again, seems to have run out of enthusiasm for his story towards the end. I enjoyed the first part.

    "Fascinating story raises death penalty questions"

    Fascinating story...if you believe in the death penalty, Grisham tells a compelling tale that may change your mind...and in the process, he creates a character who experiences redemption.

    "Great narrator; exciting book!"

    Excellent narrator who brought the characters to life. Excellent story that gives deep thought on the death penalty and forgiveness.

    "Disappointed with plot"

    No gotchas, no twists, no turns. If I did not know better I thought I was listening to a documentary on Capital Punishment.

    Story
    "Surprised me"

    I picked this as a filler while waiting for some new releases. This was well done and had plenty of twists and turns that I did not foresee. The characters were strong Adam the grandson and Sam the death row inmate grandfather. Forgiveness for some horrible crimes was the center of this story for me. I especially appreciate the pastoral consultations the inmate received. It was very candid and biblically realistic. The performance was good - I had recently listed to Sycamore Row by the same author and narrator.

    I will have to say the ending left me unfulfilled. Maybe I wanted him to do more -- and will leave at that so no spoiler.
