The Confession by John Grisham
Suspenseful Legal Thriller Makes a Wonderful Holiday Gift!
John Grisham's novels have a way of keeping a person on the edge of their seats, wondering what will happen next. This novel is no exception.
The Confession is a suspense story of an innocent man (DontÃ© Drumm, a local football star), wrongfully convicted of rape and murder of a cheerleader. Spent nine years on death row and now his time was up.
The police didn't have a body. Drumm's conviction was based on circumstantial evidence. Needing someone to convict, DontÃ© Drumm was beaten down by heavy interrogation and confessed to a crime he did not commit.
Travis Boyette spent half his life in prison with a long history of sexual assault. Registered as a sex offender in four states and just paroled from prison, Travis knew where her body was. He was the one who strangled the cheerleader with his own hands.
Boyette, living in a halfway house and an inoperable brain tumor, he wanted to make it right for Drumm. First he needed to convince lawyers, judges, and politicians that DontÃ© Drumm is an innocent man with the execution only four days away.
The Confession: A Novel - John Grisham at His Finest
"The Confession is the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense story that demands to be inhaled as quickly as possible. But it's also a superb work of social criticism in the literary troublemaker tradition of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle....Brilliant"
"Grisham is the master of the legal thriller."--USA Today
