Ok, I think I get it now, John Grisham is opposed to the death penalty. Donte Drumm has been convicted of a murder that he did not commit and is awaiting execution in Texas. The police railroaded him into confessing, the prosecuting attorney was having an affair with the judge and the key witness lied on the stand. The real killer, Travis Boyette, confesses to a preacher in Kansas four days before the execution is to take place.
Pretty good book with all of the legal drama that Grisham uses so well, did I mention the author is opposed to the death penalty? I found it ironic that Mr Grisham, in light of his views, makes a pretty good argument for the death penalty for someone like Travis Boyette.
