In this instant #1 New York Times bestseller, John Grisham delivers a classic legal thriller—with a twist.

“Terrific…affecting…Grisham has done it again.”—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
“A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes.”—Associated Press

In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. 

Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence.  But no one was listening.  He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time.  Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.

They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

    Excellent book. I learned something new..again. Brillant pairing for John Grisham's books when Michael Beck is the reader. Can't wait for a new JG 2020 book.

    Interesting read but anti-climatic.

  • Anonymous

    Really good book, a little trouble following the different alleged criminals and charges, but ultimately I rated a 4 because I missed there being a love interest for the main character. There should have been some vein within the story that developed that. The challenge to be successful in that part of his life would have rounded out the other successes he had at the end. Great Narration!

    I was not disappointed . Unfortunately there are men that are sent to jail for crimes they did not committed. Kept my interest all the way. Fine novel again. Mercedes K.

    Held my interest well

  • Heather G.

    Interesting story just got a little lost at times as there is a few to many characters to keep track of. Narration was great!
