California lawyer Greg Monarch was in no mood for visitors. But it's not every day a federal judge comes knocking at his door, especially with a curious request: to review the final appeal of a murderer on Death Row who personally asked for Greg's assistance. Tired of defending killers, Greg has every intention of turning the case down until he discovers the prisoner is a former lover he hasn't seen in two decades: the fiery, impetuous Sarah Trant.

Her fate determined in a verdict rendered five years before, Sarah was found guilty of slashing an old man's throat in central California's sheltered El Nido Valley. All subsequent appeals have been denied. Now, six months from execution, she turns to the one man she hopes can save her. Greg failed once before in trying to rescue Sarah from her private demons. This time, however, the demons may not be just in her head.

    " If you want to talk about injustice, this is it. After you read this book you feel like everyone is wrongfully convicted. Most important, you begin to see the truth about the way people are prosecuted and see that unfair trials happen way more often than you think. It's unreal to see how many people get screwed by the system and then get stuck inside of it. If you read this book, you will fully be able to understand how criminal defense attorneys should be respected. "
