Grippando delivers his readers a page-turner.
As Andie is dealing with preeclampsia and bed rest, Jack stumbles into a death-row/pro-bono case after having moved into his new office at the Freedom Institute.
A kidnapping victim’s mom is insisting that the convicted murderer – whose death warrant was just signed by the governor – in her daughter’s case is innocent because she has just taken a call from her supposedly dead daughter.
It turns out, however, witnesses, including the victim’s family (from the original crime), for the victim are not being honest with Jack – this would make me call a halt to everything – except that a man’s life is on the line and the clock is ticking!
