About this ebook

He is obsessed with her innocence.  He will be destroyed by her guilt.

The walls were champagne.  The house was immaculate.  A prosperous doctor lived there with his son and his beautiful wife.  But the elegant walls hid a family's secret, a wife's shame.  And one day shots rang out in the doctor's house.  Suddenly Jennifer Witt was in jail, facing the death penalty.

Jennifer insisted that she had not killed her abusive husband -- and she could never have killed her own son.  Dismas Hardy believed her.  But Hardy was only part of the defense team, and the only lawyer who continued to believe her...even as her story was torn to pieces, even as her lies came out, even as she was found guilty of murder.

Now there's only one thing Jennifer can do to save her life...and she refuses to do it.  So Hardy must do it for her.  And in a shocking case of violence, betrayal, and lies, his only weapon is the truth...

The 13th Juror...When innocence is not enough.

I'm thinking this is what is called a "procedural", since the author went into detail regarding the steps taken/required during a trial. That slowed the pace of the book quite a bit, although the plot was otherwise quite good. I personally didn't care for that much detail, but still had to keep reading to get to the end of the story and find out what happened!

A little long but good.

Probably one of the best courtroom thrillers I have ever read and my introduction to Lescroart. He is definitely a master storyteller. The ending absolutely blew me away.
