The clock ticks down in a heart-pounding crusade for justice
Susan Lentigo’s daughter was murdered 20 years ago – and now, at long last, this small-town waitress sets out on a road trip all the way from Upstate New York to North Dakota to witness the killer’s execution.
On her journey she discovers shocking new evidence that leads her to suspect the condemned man is innocent – and the real killer is still free. Even worse, her prime suspect has a young daughter who’s at terrible risk. With no money and no time to spare, Susan sets out to uncover the truth before an innocent man gets executed and another little girl is killed.
But the FBI refuses to reopen the case. They – and Susan’s own mother – believe she’s just having an emotional breakdown. Reaching deep, Susan finds an inner strength she never knew she had. With the help of two unlikely allies – a cynical, defiant teenage girl and the retired cop who made the original arrest – Susan battles the FBI to put the real killer behind bars. Will she win justice for the condemned man – and her daughter – at last?
Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and Harlan Coben.
Optioned for film – with Leonardo DiCaprio attached as producer.
Susan’s young daughter was murdered years ago. The man accused of her murder is now about to be put to death. Susan is determined to see it through. However, as she travels to his execution, she comes across some new information. The accused may be innocent. Susan must do everything she can to correct this. An innocent man is about to die and this is not going to happen on her watch.
Susan is a character which tore at my heart. She lost her daughter then she lost her marriage. She has struggled to just go on with her life. But, she cannot let go of her daughter. The key to this case is a necklace. It is just a necklace of cheap beads. But they made it together and her daughter was wearing it the day she died. And the necklace has never been found.
While on her trip to the execution, Susan discovers something about the necklace. And it is not what you expect. You will have to read this to find out!
This definitely would make a great movie. It is intense and alarming in places.
