Nina Bloom is a successful lawyer and loving mother. Her past contains a dark secret which she has successfully kept from her daughter, her friends and her firm.
But now an innocent man is about to be executed for a crime that Nina knows he didn't commit. Since she is literally the only one who can save him, will she risk everything she has achieved to save him?
A very suspenseful story that will keep you guessing...you never know what's coming next. The characters are very well integrated into the story. Nina is a pretty sympathetic character. It is admirable how she sacrifices for others.
One of Patterson's better stories. Main conent warning is there are a couple of violent scenes.
