This is the first I have heard of or read a book by Tim Green. I have to say, his writing style is right on! Every single page of this thriller left me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next, who would get hurt, who done it, you name it!

False Convictions is an excellent book full of corruption, lies and deceit that will blow your mind! It was a page turner that I could not tear myself to put down until the very last page. Then I wanted more! I would love to see Tim Green

Following on the heels of his well received Above The Law, Tim Green spins another suspenseful tale reminding us that oftentimes little is as it appears to be.

Once again starring feisty, tough but beautiful attorney Casey Jordan FALSE CONVICTIONS takes us into the worlds of billionaire Robert Graham who believes money can buy anything and is willing to spend plenty to get what he want, and to a prison where an indigent African-American, Dwayne Hubbard, is serving a life sentence for the horrible
False Convictions is a legal thriller, full of suspense and plot twists. Casey Jordan is a seasoned lawyer who has survived the scandal of having been duped by a former client. She'd once represented a serial killer, helped win his freedom, and then discovered he wasn't just guilty but that he was prepared to kill again. She was able to rectify the mistake and found herself the star of a movie on Lifetime. She rehabilitated her career and heads a nonprofit law clinic in Texas.

When Robert Graham,

Synopsis: (from the book jacket) Tormented by death threats and assassination attempts, Casey investigates a prosecution apparently rife with lies. From the judge, the lawyers. the jury, to the police, she traces a web of corruption surrounding the destruction of one young man. But in all the chaos, Casey's hardest challenge may be just staying alive.
My Thoughts: Casey Jordan, Texas attorney, beautiful and famous since having had a movie made about her and a recent case that she won. Enter Rob

I don't know about the plot here. Basically a very similar premise as Above The Law. Which I liked. Don't see how Casey can be duped again in similar fashion. But hey it is only fiction. I did like the story and it is well developed i just couldn't get past the similar plot line. Casey gets asked to join The Freedom project a not for profit group of lawyers helping to appeal wrongly convicted people and get them out of jail. A wealthy billionaire Robert Graham asks her to reopen the case of a po ...more

Despite some language issues, I will probably read more by this author.

This was a hard to put down story of a lawyer offered one million dollars for her legal aid clinic if she will take on a Freedom Project case to overturn the conviction of a man whose trial was railroaded through a racially charged community two decades ago. As Casey battles the corruption within a small town's political structure, she begins to uncover layers of secrets she was not meant to discover, and she must soon fight

Another captivating Casey Jordan thriller. This time Casey is offered a million dollars a year for her legal clinic if she will work a case or two a year for the Freedom Project, assisting them to get convicted felons who are not guilty freed from prison. The head of the project takes her to New York where they work on freeing a convicted rapist-murderer. There are a number of fascinating characters along with tons of action and an ending that will endear the author to most readers. Another good ...more

This is my first Tim Green, but I will certainly be reading more. This was a real page turner and hard to put down once I started. The plot twists kept my fingers on the edge of the page ready to turn quickly to the next one. This is a legal thriller with corruption, murder, legal antics, and a hint of romance. Great characters and exciting story.
Feb 18, 2010 Angela rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
the very end was kind of good but other things didnt make much sense like if Casey is such a great lawyer then she would have investigated if there was a seriel killer at the same time the girl was killed or better yet the journalist would have too. Its not very believable that for 20 years a guy was in prison and this one lawyer waltzes in and just gets him out.

Grabbed this from RRL. Okay! Now I am a fan of Tim Green! He writes about upstate NY! His main bad guy has an office in Rochester and contacts in Buffalo. Casey Jordan is a very believable character! A heroine who isn't perfect and can almost be won over by the bad guys!

Fast moving with some fun twists and turns. I am going to look up more books by Tim.

I liked this one - the first time for me reading Tim Green, but I may go back and check out some of his earlier books. My rating is really 3 and 1/2. Interesting twists at the end.

Poor plot

My first book of 2013!

I really liked Tim Green's THE FIRST 48 but was not as swept away by FALSE CONVICTIONS. This was an easy read, a little bit corny and not as suspenseful.

Pretty good read. I like the lawyer character he has had in the last 2 books I have read.
this book was a quick, fun read with some twists. Not the best book ever, but certainly not the worst either.
