I just finished The Confession by John Grisham and I have to say he can still tell a story which stays with you. When a story can cause me to think about it for days or even weeks after I finish it, then to me, it is a great story.
Donte Drumm is about to be executed for a crime he did not commit, and as his lawyer exhausts all last minute appeals, a dying criminal confesses to the crime Donte was found guilty of. Can the execution of an innocent man be stopped or will the system fail at it's most critical hour?
The story draws you in and envelopes you in its heart wrenching drama as you live the intensity of the last days, hours, and minutes of a death row inmate leading up to the time of his execution. Very intense and emotional, the story will invigorate you and leave you drained at the same time. A must read. A superbly crafted tale that grabs you from the start and accelerates to the dramatic end leaving you breathless and exhausted from the ride. If you read it, let me know what you think.
