Hannah Mulligan Ward at Woking


A gripping legal thriller from the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author and creator of Sooley and The Judge's List.

An innocent man is days from execution. Only a guilty man can save him.

Travis Boyette is a murderer. Nine years ago, he strangled a high-school cheerleader and buried her body so it could never be found. Then, he watched and waited as police arrested Donte Drumm, a local football star with no connection to the crime.

Tried, convicted, and sentenced, Drumm was sent to death row whilst Boyette walked free.

Now, Donte Drumm is four days from execution. But, as Boyette faces his own mortality, he has finally decided to do what's right. He has decided to confess.

But can he convince the state that they are about to execute the wrong man?
