Twenty-three years ago, the son of the police chief was pushed into the path of an oncoming car, and Metroix went to prison for the boy's murder. Everything in Metroix's file indicates that he's unpredictable and dangerous. But what's more unsettling is his claim that he's innocent - a claim that crawls under Carolyn's skin and stays there, especially when a routine meeting erupts into an inferno that nearly kills them both. Protecting him is Carolyn's only chance to defend herself and her family - and to right a wrong that may have sent an innocent man to prison, while letting a killer go free.
Story was interesting enough, but this author has produced much better work. Too many unlikely situations and coincidences. Did not care for the narrator AT ALL. Slow, stilted rhythm which made the reading sound like a grade school production. Tried adjusting the playback speed on my iPod, but speeding it up did not make it any easier to listen to. I finished the book, but never really bonded with any of the characters or their situations and didn't particularly care how the story concluded.
