Gripping but predictable

Compelling and gripping.

Grisham at his finest. The story was believable as it was based on actual stories. All too often the guilty roam free while the innocent are incarcerated. Highly recommended.

“Well you should care. About my past, I mean. Because who I am today is based on who I was, and what happened to me. You are in love with who you think I am, not the real me. Not the me who is broken inside.”
