Publisher's Summary

Tobias Butler has been sitting on death row since being sentenced for a gruesome murder in 2007. Bored out of his mind, he decides to apply to the online pen pal program in 2012. It's a pleasant distraction - nothing more, nothing less - for three years, until he's contacted by a beautiful, smart young lawyer named Jess. She's convinced he's innocent and wants to see him freed. As they organize their attack on the judicial system, he wonders how she plans to get his conviction overturned - because he's guilty, and he knows it. Jess is desperate to release him...and he's desperate to feel his hands squeeze the life out of her once she does.

That was something else!

Would you consider the audio edition of Emancipation to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Emancipation?

Just the fact that the killer knows he is guilty. It was a unique twist and his fantasies about her.

What does Norman Gilligan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice added the perfect about of darkness to Tobias.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really. It was a more suspenseful than moving book.Being inside Tobias' head was very freaky. I felt the end coming and was please to see how it played out.

- What are you reading?

I Have No Words!!!!

Wow!!!!! Just Wow! In the beginning I was emotionally confused by Tobias. I didn't know if he turned me on or creeped me out. Probably a little of both. Jo Michaels's mind is scary as she manipulated this story and twists the mind of the reader like a knotted braid. It was PERFECTION!

Norman Gilligan will now be type "narrator" cast. Like any time I see his name he will always be Tobias lol. His voice was perfect as the psycho, inmate.

This was my first book by Michaels and let's just say it won't be the last!
