Description

The Sunday Times bestseller from international bestseller John Grisham. ‘Grisham at his passionate best’ – Daily Mail He was framed for murder. Now he needs a miracle. 22 years ago Quincy Miller was sentenced to life without parole. He was accused of killing Keith Russo a lawyer in a small Florida town. But there were no reliable witnesses and little motive. Just the fact that Russo had botched Quincy’s divorce case that Quincy was black in a largely all-white town and that a blood-splattered torch was found in the boot of Quincy’s car. A torch he swore was planted. A torch that was conveniently destroyed in a fire just before his trial. The lack of evidence made no difference to judge or jury. In the eyes of the law Quincy was guilty and no matter how often he protested his innocence his punishment was life in prison. Finally after 22 years comes Quincy’s one and only chance of freedom. An innocence lawyer and minister Cullen Post takes on his case. Post has exonerated eight men in the last ten years. He intends to make Quincy the next. But there were powerful and ruthless people behind Russo’s murder. They prefer that an innocent man dies in jail rather than one of them. There’s one way to guarantee that. They killed one lawyer 22 years ago and they’ll kill another without a second thought. Praise for John Grisham’s THE GUARDIANS: ‘A canny and engrossing blend of two types of Grisham novel: enough of the familiar formula of a single lawsuit in a single town mixed with a more picaresque and multistranded approach that has the significant advantage of taking in a wider swathe of America’ – The Sunday Times ‘Delivered with all his signature easy flowing style. A past master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos Grisham makes this a deceptively easy read’ – Irish Independent ‘This is typical Grisham: speedy gripping very good at conveying the complexities of the law in a digestible way’ – Sunday Express ‘Speedy and gripping’ – Daily Mirror ************ THE INNOCENT MAN by John Grisham is now a major six-part documentary series on Netflix ************
