Adam Hill is 26 years old and in his first year at a top Chicago law firm. He volunteers for the toughest assignment any lawyer could ask for. His prospective client doesn't want Adam or his law firm. He is an unrepentant and outspoken racist with a violent past. He is on death row for the murder of two Jewish children in a horrific bombing in 1967. Why would he take on Adam, a complete novice, to defend him? And why would Adam want his case so desperately? The answer lies in the past, in a 20-year-old secret buried in the madness of another time.More

A low for Grisham
Regardless of Becks's narration he could not make something of a weak plot.
Towards the low end
The initial plot. A guy in the death chamber, a young inexperienced lawyer. It had the makings, but alas.
To be careful with Grisham next time.
How could Grisham make the guy on deathrow die and the young lawyer fail! To make a point about the death penalty? Sorry, I could not get the point. I loved almost all his other books to bits!
