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.

    "Great Gresham"

    I have read many of John Gresham's books and this is among my favorite. It is less about the laws and more about right and wrong and the power of forgiveness. Highly recommend!

    Story
    "Sorry"

    Normally I find Grisham's books to be intelligent, intriguing and great reads but this one drones on with hours of minor details that just are not necessary. Its the first Grisham book I am thinking about returning to Audible. I feel terrible writing a bad review of a Grisham book but I just cant finish this one.

    Story
    "Morbid with an expected end"

    If you are looking for a legal drama or suspense...there is none!
    The author builds a crescendo by introducing new characters to foreseen conclusion, but ultimately the story falls flat!
    If all the characters were indeed author has done a great job...otherwise it sounds like just copied and pasted from several newspaper articles

    Story
    "I have given up on John Grisham"

    Going years back I read many of John Greshams books and really enjoyed them

    The last three books I have gotten I have not enjoyed it all they seem very slow and just plod along

    It's hard to believe the same person is writing these books

    You've heard the saying three strikes and you're out and that's the way I am with John Grisham

    Story
    "Beware the book has an agenda"

    Paints the murderer as sympathetic victim. Rails against the death penalty. Hard to enjoy the story with the ultra liberal slant.
