Publisher's Summary

Seven years ago, Winston Melton was on top of the world: a privileged kid fresh off his first semester at Princeton. Life was perfect - until he was accused of the rape and murder of an ex-girlfriend. Years after his conviction, another death-row inmate has come forward with an 11th-hour confession, casting Win's conviction in a new light. But with the ink drying on his death sentence, time is running short.
Win's grandmother, the family matriarch, has her eyes set on one of the Help Innocent Prisoners Project's defense lawyers: Dani Trumball, and her reputation for results, no matter the cost. Dani, concerned she is being bought, initially refuses but eventually takes the case.
Soon, Dani can sense that something's off, both with Win's conviction and the new confession. But seven years after the incident, is there still a chance of uncovering the truth?

Vanilla

It actually started vanilla then in the second half it was as entertaining as sticking an ice pick in one's ear.
You give the author liberties because its fiction of course but when the liberties become as realistic as Wile E. Coyote running off a cliff and remaining in mid air for a couple of seconds, the liberties become ridiculous. Then every time there is a flaw it is magnified.
The story is unrealistic and the depth of the characters is...well there is no depth.
If I were to guess the author is an English Grammar teacher or a reporter for a newspaper who has lived in a sheltered environment. It reads as a report in a lot of ways. Repetitive in many areas.
The "twist" was no twist at all. I was listening half hearted and had it figured out.
This is a feel good waste of hours in a person's life to read this. Thanks to Audible and its high speed reading option or I would have never suffered through this.
A word on the narrator: maybe it's what she had to work with but this was a mediocre performance at best. Kudos to her for finishing. If it were me I would have called in with laryngitis, flu, drug addiction or prison sentence to keep from associating my name with this "novel".

Reads like a comic book

I stood it for about 20 minutes before deciding it wasn't going to get any better. Shallow characters, contrived plot, lack of actionable motives, and maybe I just don't like picking up a murder mystery and finding out it's really about a bunch of unlikable people scrabbling over money. Could it be that it just got off to a bad start? But no, the narrator just doesn't seem right for this subject matter, and that's going to last for the whole book.
