Book: The Confession
Author: John Grisham
Setup: An innocent man is facing his final week on death row when a man claiming to be the actual perpetrator comes forward. Will this revelation be able to save the innocent man before his sentence is carried out?
Thoughts: This felt like a passion project book, which can always go one of two ways. Luckily, John Grisham is a good enough writer that the story breezes, but all the facts and preaching make the story a little clunky. Still the topic of judicial review and capital punishment is important and deserving of discussion.
