IMAGINE BEING ACCUSED OF A CRIME THAT YOU DIDN'T COMMITTED. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE IN THAT POSITION?
Steve Harmon lived an okay life. He went to school, hung out with friends, and did is chores at home. But all that change when he and two other men were arrested and charged with robbery, and the murder of a local drugstore clerk. When the two other men Richard "Bobo" Evans, and James King admit to being involved in the robbery, but both say that Steve Harmon was the one who pulled the trigger, all eyes turn to Steve. Steve denies having any part in a crime what so ever. That's where Defense Attorney Kathy O'Brien comes in. Trying to convince the judge, and the jury that her client Steve Harmon is innocent. But Prosecution Attorney Sandra Petrocelli won't make it easy.
I recommend you read this book due to it's serious, and twisted theme, along with it's suspenseful mood.
