A Novel
Written by Richard North Patterson | Narrated by Patricia Kalember
Charged with the murder of a nine-year-old girl, brothers Rennell and Payton are set to pay the ultimate price for this grisly crime. Years later, lawyer Teresa becomes convinced of Rennell’s innocence — and begins a race against time to halt his execution. “Those looking for a powerful courtroom drama will not be disappointed” (Booklist).


When the body of nine-year old Thuy Sen is found in the San Francisco Bay, the police quickly charge Rennell and Payton Price with her grisly murder. A twelve-person jury, abetted by an incompetent defense lawyer, is nearly as quick to find the brothers guilty, and to sentence them both to die for their crimes.

Fifteen years later, overworked pro bono laywer Teresa Peralta Paget, her husband Chris, and stepson Carlo, a recent Harvard law graduate, become convinced not only that Rennell didn’t receive a fair trial but that he may well be innocent. Racing against the clock and facing enormous legal obstacles, Teresa, Chris, and Carlo desperately try to stay Rennell’s execution, taking the case all the way to the Supreme Court, and to an enormously moving and powerful conclusion.
