In bestselling author Tim Green's latest thriller, Casey Jordan returns-seeking justice in a small town riddled with . . . FALSE CONVICTIONS Casey is counting on an open-and-shut case, a sure success for her first effort with the Freedom Project, the renowned charity group dedicated to helping exonerate wrongfully convicted prisoners. Not only is the Freedom Project giving Casey the chance to help innocent people, but its founder, Robert Graham, is offering Casey a one-million-dollar annual pledge to her legal clinic for taking on just two jobs a year. Her first assignment is to revive the case of Dwayne Hubbard, an indigent black man serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of a college student seventeen years ago. Using DNA evidence, Casey expects to easily prove Hubbard's innocence. Yet when she arrives in rural Auburn, New York, she meets immediate and aggressive resistance.
Tormented by death threats and assassination attempts, Casey investigates a prosecution apparently rife with lies. From the judge, the lawyers, the jury, to the police, she traces a web of corruption surrounding the destruction of one young man. But in all the chaos, Casey's hardest challenge may be just staying alive.
When fiesty attorney Casey Jordan agrees to join Robert Graham's pet charity the Freedom Project, she has no idea her life was about to be changed forever again. Famous for defending a man who was released only to kill again, Casey isn't too happy about taking on the case of Duwayne Hubbard convicted of brutally raping and mutilating a teenage girl. However, her firm needs the million dollar donation Graham promised to continue helping less fortunate women with their legal needs.
From island get aways with a millionare, to skulking in dark alleys with reporter Jake, Casey tries to sift truth from lies. Nothing's what it seems and what she doesn't know, just may get her killed. Though part of a series, this book read well as a stand alone. Non stop suspense and poetic justice make this thriller a must read.
