Lawyer David Sloane is a desperate parent. His son Jake, still reeling from the loss of his mother in a brutal murder, has spiraled out of control. Sloane needs to reconnect with him, needs to keep him out of jail. So when an old friend suggests a guys-only camping trip, Sloane accepts. But the trip takes a turn for the worse when Jake and his buddy are caught vandalizing a general store. Brought to trial in a kangaroo court, the presiding judge tries, convicts and sentences the boys to 6 months in the county-owned wilderness detention center. As Sloane fights the conviction, he stumbles into ever-more menacing territory. A clannish town, a judge whose authority seems to extend far beyond the confines of his courtroom, and the emerging story of a juvenile detention center from hell, where the glories of nature cover dark secrets.

What a wild ride The Conviction was!! I honestly don't know how to describe the plot without giving things away, so I'll just say that if you love pulse-pounding, page-turning, sleep-robbing tales, READ THIS BOOK!!
