In bestselling author Tim Green's latest thriller, Casey Jordan returns-seeking justice in a small town riddled with . . .
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.

Casey Jordan operates a Dallas law clinic that provides legal assistance to those who are unable to afford competent representation. She’s also a legal superstar; her most high-profile case was the basis for an acclaimed made-for-television movie, and she’s in demand as a commentator on the cable networks. Billionaire industrialist Robert Graham’s favorite philanthropic effort is the Freedom Project, an organization that works for the exoneration of individuals who may have been falsely convicted. Graham offers Jordan a million-dollar donation to her clinic if she’ll take on Dwayne Hubbard’s 20-year-old murder conviction in upstate New York. Casey reluctantly agrees and quickly finds herself immersed in the case and an ongoing cover-up involving the local legal, medical, and law-enforcement organizations. Green, a former NFL player, lawyer, and author of 13 mysteries, offers a generally believable plot, solid dialogue, a little romance, and a few choice dollops of humor as Jordan works her way through layers of obfuscation and self-serving small-town motives. Toss in a wild twist for another entertaining effort from a dependable veteran. --Wes Lukowsky
