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.

This book was disappointing, compared to the other two books I've ready by this author. It just wasn't plausible that a supposedly intelligent person (Casey) would be that prone to bobbing along, swayed by all the big men around her, not able to think things through or consider the different options. The ending was just cheesy.

We know when everything seemed to have been unraveled by the middle of the book that this was not to be the end. Indeed. There is so much bending, detours, mazes, and double backs that you start thinking that you're in a wild car chase and you don't know why, because you've only been to the mall buying a six pack and some fudge for the wife. In the last part of the book it's just seemed that they were just clutching at straws with each chapter bringing a new turn. The ending is tight ( a bit to tight ) for such a savvy guy. I found this book lacking in some details. Things just happened and the story sped along. A good read, but a tad unsatisfying.
