David Baldacci’s novels have been called “sizzling” (USA Today) and “superior” (Houston Chronicle). Now Baldacci is back with the story of a death row inmate, a Supreme Court clerk, and a crime that is costing people their lives.

Twenty-five years ago, Rufus Harms was convicted of a murder he knows he committed. However, when his memory is jogged by a letter from the army, he has a shocking realization: he’s not guilty. From prison, Rufus secretly files an appeal with the Supreme Court, unaware that the real killers are on to him. But the long-time convict knows he’s running out of time when the Supreme Court clerk who is the first to see Rufus’ appeal and Harms’ lawyer are both murdered. Sprung from prison by his brother, Rufus must now elude capture long enough to expose a shocking cover-up and save his own life.

David Baldacci takes listeners on a journey of harrowing conspiracy and proves once again that, in the realm of suspense, he is in a league of his own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As with a scenic drive, the destination of a Baldacci cliff-hanger is less important than the route taken. Baldacci’s passengers, repeaters and new ones alike, will be clamoring to ride along.”


  • “Compelling…Finely drawn…A page-turner worth losing sleep over.”

    USA Today

  • “It’s a truism that readers who like Grisham’s novels often take to Baldacci’s, but never has Baldacci’s debt to the more veteran author been so evident as in this strong-boned thriller…For foxy plotting, Baldacci is easily Grisham’s peer, and his characters are always captivating…Generously textured, distinguished by thoughtful delvings into family psychodramatics, a nicely rendered romance between two tentative lovers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Baldacci’s novel continues to offer new surprises.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " This was an amazing book. The storyline is gripping but Baldacci writes so well about the complicated, heart-wrenching emotions that bind families together and tear them apart. "
