Description:
For 22 years Quincy Miller has sat on Death Row without friends, family or legal representation. He was accused of killing a Keith Russo, a lawyer in a small Florida town. But there were no witnesses and no motive. Just the fact that Quincy was black in an all-white town and that a blood-splattered torch was found in the boot of his car. A torch he swore was planted. A torch that conveniently disappeared from evidence just before his trial. But the police photographs of the torch were enough. In the eyes of the law Quincy is guilty and, no matter how often he protests his innocence, his punishment will be death. Finally, after 22 years, an innocence lawyer and minister, Cullen Post, takes on his case. But there were powerful and ruthless people behind Russo's murder. They prefer that an innocent man goes to his death than one of them.

I enjoyed this book overall; Grisham can still weave a good tale; a story whose core idea is based on fact. I still think Grisham has been in cruise control for some years and this book does not compare to his best.
