Mystery & Suspense • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Grisham’s latest legal thriller involves a lawyer and a preacher who are seeking evidence to exonerate a man on death row for a grisly murder. As the clock ticks, Travis Boyette suddenly appears, making everyone question who the real killer is. Scott Sowers differentiates the main characters—from the deliberate Boyette to the troubled prisoner. Sowers gives a believable Texas twang to many of the characters, including the frustrated defense lawyer and his cadre of opponents. He uses his clearest voice for the Reverend, who finds himself caught in an ethical quandary. This is Grisham at his best, winding a lawyerly tale about personal ethics, criminal justice, and religious values, and the narration is equally well crafted.
