"The Confession" by John Grisham. For every innocent man sent to prison, there is a guilty guy left on the outside who doesn’t understand how the police and prosecutors got the wrong man, and he doesn’t care.

Now he wants to make things right, but how can he convince the judicial system that they are about to execute an innocent man.

"Dangerous" by Diana Palmer.

Can Winnie help him crack the case, and crack the ice around his heart?
