California lawyer Greg Monarch was in no mood for visitors. But it's not every day a federal judge comes knocking at his door, especially with a curious request: to review the final appeal of a murderer on Death Row who personally asked for Greg's assistance. Tired of defending killers, Greg has every intention of turning the case down until he discovers the prisoner is a former lover he hasn't seen in two decades: the fiery, impetuous Sarah Trant.Her fate determined in a verdict rendered five years before, Sarah was found guilty of slashing an old man's throat in central California's sheltered El Nido Valley. All subsequent appeals have been denied. Now, six months from execution, she turns to the one man she hopes can save her. Greg failed once before in trying to rescue Sarah from her private demons. This time, however, the demons may not be just in her head.

A Good Tale and Well Narrated
Ed Asner produced a fine performance. I realise that at times his voice dropped to give more theatrical underpinning to the narration, which meant that this is best listened to when not faced by other distractions. I was ill at the time so was able to lie back and give it my full attention and listened in almost one sitting.
Yes - well thought out plot - good legal thriller.
The courtroom scenes.
Never Give Up
