Richard North Patterson’s writing has been called “masterful” (Senator Edward Kennedy) and his style “bare-knuckled” (Kirkus Reviews). Now with his return to the courtroom, add “sensational” and “page-turner” to the list….
There’s little hope for Rennell and Payton Price once they’re fingered for the grisly murder of a 9-year-old child. Now, after 15 years on death row, the brothers are about to meet their maker—unless Teresa Peralta Paget can stay the executions. Chris Paget has nothing but admiration for his overworked wife, a pro-bono lawyer who has recruited his son Carlo, a recent Harvard law grad, to reopen the investigation. Teresa is convinced that not only did the Prices receive an unfair trial but that Rennell, a simple-minded giant of a man, is innocent. It’s proving it that becomes an act of desperation when, with little time to spare, the loose threads of the case lead in dangerous directions.
Patterson knows his way around the legal system better than most, and this impossible-to-put-down novel—that takes you all the way to the Supreme Court—could be his best thrill ride to date.
