Fast pace detective story about a violent meth addict killer and how a "feeble" young man was coerced to admit to those crimes. Soon the DA & his wife got involved to right the wrong.

Another great book with an excellent plot. You don't have to be a lawyer to understand his books . Different plot from rest of books but an excellent read.
