Publisher's Summary

From Michael Harvey, Chicago’s best-known crime writer and author of the popular Michael Kelly series, comes something different: a leap forward into a dark world where the lines between innocence and guilt disappear altogether.
They’re young, brilliant, beautiful...and naïve enough to believe they can make a difference. For three graduate students, the exclusive innocence seminar at the nation’s most esteemed journalism school is supposed to teach them how to free the falsely accused from prison. Little do they know the most important lesson they’ll learn is how to stay alive.
The first day of class for Ian Joyce and Sarah Gold starts like any other, until a fellow student, Jake Havens, pulls a wrinkled envelope from his backpack. Inside is a bloodstained scrap of shirt from a boy murdered 14 years ago and an anonymous note taking credit for the killing. The only problem is the alleged murderer is already dead.
Suddenly, the class has a new assignment: find the real killer. As the case unfolds, the bodies and questions begin to pile up.
Why are innocent men being framed?
Who’s been getting away with murder?
Drawn into a web of deceit and corruption, the students realize they, too, are being hunted. Ian, Sarah, and Jake are smart...but are they smart enough to stay alive?
From Northwestern’s idyllic campus, to the grittiest corners of Chicago, to the frigid depths of Lake Michigan, The Innocence Game is irresistible, harrowing suspense from a writer at the top of his form.

Great listen! Caught me from the beginning!

I almost did not order this book because of how few reviews it got. But I liked the description and I am glad I got past that. The book draws you in. The characters are interesting and there are surprises! Now I am off to order more books by Michael Harvey

Good weekend 'read'

This is fast-food, drive-through lit. The plot moves along at a good clip, and I got a lot of gardening and housework done by listening to it. The premise is implausible but intriguing: a graduate seminar at the Medill School of Journalism leads to a vast conspiracy. Three intrepid graduate students, each with his or her own agenda, uncover aforementioned vast conspiracy. Take it to the beach this summer.
