To kill or not to kill is the question when it comes to violent crime. "Should the State execute a killer?" is the undercurrent of Grisham's The Confession.
Whether you agree with his philosophy or not Grisham makes a good dramatic case for his position. A man is to make the ultimate sacrifice.
A criminal walks into the office of a minister and confesses to a crime that propels this thriller forward. Deadlines have to be met and are not.
The minister and the confessor cross State's lines, and the country becomes aware of the atrocity about to happen through the efforts of a devoted lawyer. All attempts to resolve the situation is taken with negative results.
Extreme forces come alive that make the situation volatile. Churches are burned on both sides of the conflict to keep a man alive. The result is deadly and not arrived at happily.
This book will keep you on your toes, and you keep changing the page.
