Descriere

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same.

Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran—and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Aided by his skeptical neighbor, Lila, Joe throws himself into uncovering the truth. Thread by thread, he begins to unravel the tapestry of Carl's conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it's too late to escape the fallout?

  • (5/5)
    Above everything else this book is about compassion, perseverance in the face of sure defeat, and seeking of justice. It is also about acts of kindness, those that are done unplanned, almost instinctively, but that despite their perceived smallness they are invaluable and responsible for shaping lives. Great read, there’s action, love, legal jargon, and enough thriller intensity to keep you engaged.

    Very well written.!! Would highly recommend....a must read for mystery fans.
  • (4/5)
    The first third or so of this novel was serious fiction done very well. Then the action took over, and I found myself wondering if I’d been wrong. I think not, though; I think the author had an editorial change of heart and settled on a more popular genre. Probably done better than most, but not nearly as interesting to me.
