Carsen Taite had me on edge throughout this book. Corey a suspended prosecutor and made to work at a Pro Bono Law Clinic, Serene is a Banker from Florida, she gets a letter from her brother on death row in Texas. Corey and Serene have a rocky relationship but who knows where it goes. What happens to Eric ? This page turner will leave you up at night reading. Yet another great book by Caresen.
Another fantastic court room story by Carsen Taite. Skey reappears in the story and takes on an excellent role in assisting the characters with the case.
