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.

    "Ok story, great narration"

    The story kinda disappointed and took a look time to do so. No turn around moments or suprises. The narrator did a great job as usual giving characters different voices.

    "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.

    "Classic Grisham"

    Well delivered in the class is format, but lacking the big hook I was expecting at the end. a bit of a let down, but entertaining.

    "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.
