Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A race-against-time court-room drama which highlights some of the inadequacies of the American legal system and how pure determination can sometimes succeed even against seemingly impossible odds. It is edge-of-the-seat stuff and really very good indeed.

Comparison: David Baldacci, Scott Turow, Steve Martini.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Conviction by Richard North Patterson

Another thrilling courtroom drama from the internationally bestselling author of BALANCE OF POWER When the body of eleven-year-old Thuy Sen is found in San Francisco Bay, the police swiftly charge Rennell and Payton Price with her grisly murder. A twelve-person jury, helped along by an incompetent lawyer for the defense, are quick to find the brothers guilty - and to sentence them both to die for their cimes. Twelve years later, Payton is days from his execution, and overworked pro bono lawyer Teresa Peralta Paget, her husband Chris, and stepson Carlo, a recent Harvard law graduate, become convinced not only that Rennell didn't receive a fair trial, but that he's innocent. Racing against the clock and against insurmountable legal obstacles, Teresa, Chris, and Carlo desperately try and stop the execution of an innocent man.
