The Confession

An innocent man is days from execution. Only a guilty man can save him. From the bestselling master thriller writer.

Travis Boyette is a murderer. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched and waited as police and prosecutors arrested Donte Drumm, a local football star with no connection to the crime. Tried, convicted and sentenced, Drumm was sent to death row: his fate had been decided.

Nine years later, Donte Drumm is four days from execution. Over 400 miles away in Kansas, Travis faces a fate of his own: an inoperable brain tumour will soon deliver the end. Reflecting on his miserable life, he decides to do what's right. After years of silence he is ready to confess.

But how can a guilty man convince lawyers, judges and politicians that they're about to execute an innocent man?

Grisham has come up with yet another near-flawless plot... **** Mirror 20101101 John Grisham is of course celebrated for his brilliant legal thrillers and in that field he has few equals -- Barry Forshaw Daily Express 20101029 The Confession is an airing for the beliefs of the author, but it is also a page-turner. Grisham is careful never to preach ... he never forgets his primary purpose which is to entertain ... Grishamites will find all their buttons pressed. -- Barry Forshaw Independent 20101105 The Confession is a campaigning novel, attacking the death penalty and a way of doing justice (with a malign nexus of thuggish cops, supine judges and officials elected on promises of being hard on crime) that Texas epitomises ... another engrossing, teeming portrait of the Deep South. -- John Dugdale Sunday Times 20101024 Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own. -- Shari Low Daily Record 20101106
