Présentation de l'éditeur

Nineteen years ago, Indiana police found the body of a young girl, burned beyond recognition and buried in the woods. They arrested George Calhoun for murdering his daughter, and his wife testified against him at the trial. George maintains he didn’t do it. That the body isn’t his little Angelina. But that’s all he’s ever said—no other defense, no other explanation. The jury convicted him. Now his appeals have been exhausted, and his execution is just six weeks away.

Dani Trumball, an attorney for the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, wants to believe him. After all, there was no forensic evidence to prove that the body in the woods was George’s daughter. But if the girl isn’t Angelina, then who is it? And what happened to the Calhouns’ missing daughter? Despite the odds, the questions push Dani to take the case.

For nineteen years, George Calhoun has stayed silent. But he’s ready to talk, and if the story he tells Dani is true, it changes everything.

L'idée est originale et bien qu'on ne doute pas de la fin l'histoire se déroule de façon soutenue. L'anglais est agréable â lire et le vocabulaire est riche.

Par Tumbleweed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
George Calhoun has spent years on death row, convicted of murdering his young daughter. Dani Trumball is an attorney working at HIPP, the Help Innocent Prisoners Project organization. When George contacts HIPP, just six weeks before his scheduled execution, and proclaims his innocence. Dani is intrigued. With the help of two assistants, she begins a race against the clock to determine whether George is guilty of the crime and, if not, going through the court processes to have his execution stayed and his prison sentence overturned.

As a courtroom drama, the reader gets the sense of how frustrating and demanding it must be to argue a case for innocence with a system that has been created to keep the status quo intact. Was George a victim of ineffective counsel? Of course, but is that reason enough to retry his case? Did the testimony of a depressed and psychologically unstable witness go uncontested - and is this enough reason to sentence someone to an execution? And, most importantly, can the State execute a man for murdering his daughter if there is any chance that this daughter is alive? And if she is alive, then who was the little girl found murdered?

This book is written well and keeps the reader guessing until the end. Parts of it seemed a bit predictable, and I think that female readers might enjoy this book a bit more than male readers - Dani was always torn between spending time with her son or working on the case, for example. In any case, it was a thought-provoking and engaging story. I'd recommend this book to anyone wanting an enjoyable "light read" and who finds the subject of capital punishment to be of interest, as well as readers who like legal thrillers. It moved at a good pace and I found it difficult to put down. If Amazon allowed it in their ratings, I'd give this book 4.5 stars. I found it to be at least as good as any John Grisham novel.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for agreeing to write an unbiased review.

This book was sent as a complimentary copy to read on my kindle. What can I say about such a gripping story apart from, its brilliant, harrowing and so moving it makes you want to cry. Death row is not an easy subject to write about, but this author mangages to do so superbly and with such pathos. A young child murdered and burnt beyond recognition 19 years ago. A second young child went missing at the same time, no one knows what happened to her or where she may be. The accused denies the murder of the first child and will not talk about the second one. As time draws near for execution the accused writes to his last hope, lawyers who may help him. So starts one of the most horrendous stories, is the accused a murderer or an innocent person. I could hardly put this book down, as the author has written a superb plot with strong characters. You may work out the answer part way through but this does not detract from the story one bit. I highly recommend this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story idea, but completely unbelievable 2 mai 2013
Par Cocoa's Mama - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The main character heads up an investigation seeking to exonerate a man on death row for killing his young daughter. Unfortunatley, the character development just wasn't there. Believing in the characters was a huge issue for me. The investigator's son has Williams syndrome, which the author described fairly well. Unfortunately, the illness has absolutley nothing to do with the story. In fact, it was distracting. Dani, the mom, was so upset by every little thing the child did, thinking the worst when he got a simple cold. Yet, we are supposed to believe that this woman chooses to practice law in a setting where she will be required to travel. But it gets worse.

SPOILERS: We are also to believe that a girl who is treated for childhood cancer at age 2-3 and later abandoned by her parents at age 4 will have no memory of either event. As a former nurse working with children undergoing cnacer treaments, I can tell you that no 3 year old ever forgets chemotherapy. Then we have two supposedly loving parents who borrow money for their child's first round of treatments, then when the cancer returns, they can't afford to treat her and opt to drop her off with her medical records at a hospital. Tell me what hospital would let a child die without treatment? The author tells us the father made too much money. Um, I think I would quit my job to take care of my ill child and would then qualify for medicaid. Then we are supposed to believe that a nurse finds this 4 year old girl with leukemia and just keeps her as her own. I guess nobody asked any questions. The author explains this away by saying the girl is her niece that she is caring for because her parents died in an auto accident. How does the kid attend school without a birth certificate? What about a social security number that all kids have from birth? And of course her new doctor won't question medical records with all of her identifying information obliterated. Then tell me what 4 year old doesn't ask for her parents? She was obviously treated for her cancer, so there would have been a whole lot of doctors and nurse around. But we are asked to believe the girl just totally forgot about her parents.

When the investigators were trying to track down this child, they start trying to locate medical records, but didn't take the obvious first step of contacting the hospital. I can't imagine too many 4 year olds get abandoned at a hospital with medical records pinned on them. Seems like that might stand out. Last but not least is the issue of fingerprints. As a couple of reviewers have mentioned, an appeal was granted because fingerprints on a note "matched" patterns of a family member. Although research is divided on this, there may be a small degree of pattern matching in families, but this would never be the basis for a last minute appeal. As most people know, no fingerprints are alike, not even identical twins. There may be slight similarities among family members, but this is not recognized in any court of law.

I read most of the book, but skipped over the irrelevant parts, of which there were many. As I mentioned previously, the son's medical problem, then an undeveloped alcohol issue with a male investigator causing him to miss a meeting. I couldn't understand why that tidbit was added. Towards the end, I just wanted to see if the man was executed or exonerated. I ended up skimming the last few pages.

My thoughts are that the author was trying to make a political statement about afforable health care and whether or not the death penalty is justified. What may have been a good premise was killed by glaring errors in believability and poor character development.

This book captured every emotion from each character and left you feeling the same things they were feeling. With every page turn, you inched closer to the conclusion, never giving up that same hope so deeply instilled in each character. Amazing read and couldn't put it down.

It was an interesting premise but...just didn't jell for me. I only managed to finish the book by scanning the last third. I'm sure the author was trying to drag out the tension but...it just dragged. Also, with only one possible person as the bad guy - it's easy to guess the bad guy! She needed to have other, viable candidates for the killer. My eyes glazed at all the law - just not interested.
