When the body of nine-year old Thuy Sen is found in the San Francisco Bay, the police quickly charge brothers Rennell and Payton Price with her grisly murder. A jury, abetted by an incompetent defense lawyer, is quick to find the men guilty - and sentences them to die for their crimes. This is the harrowing story of a possibly innocent man, the labyrinthine politics of death row, and one lawyer's personal and professional crisis.

I read this years ago and it pretty much put me off Richard North Patterson, who I had previously enjoyed. Of course I skipped books involving his tiresome obsession with the Kennedys, but this one, with its one-sided politics, its lack of nuance, its utter lack of perspective, was the last one of his I bothered to read.
