About this book

Keith Russo, a young lawyer, was murdered one night when he was working till late in his office, in the homespun of Florida town of Seabrook. The killer did a job very neatly, there was no proof, no eyewitness to detect about the suspect, if there were someone, they were of no use. But there was another person, Quincy Miller, who was next investigated by the police, which came soon.

Quincy Miller was listened to by none and was sent to jail for all of his rest of life. He dropped away almost twenty-two years in the lockup. He was continuously striving for his innocence but only with himself. He didn’t have any lawyer or advocate in the outside world to help him or to do something for him. In this sorrow, he decided to tackle with this situation and wrote a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

There were only few cases that were managed by Cullen Post at a time. Cullen Post used to fight for those who were ignored by the rule and also to travel among the country fighting for wrongful convictions. Though Quincy Miller wanted more but he was given even more and superior by the Cullen Post. The pitiless and heartless mighty people murdered the Keith Russo and also at the same time they don’t want Quincy Miller to get released and freed.

Those inhuman people murdered the one lawyer twenty-two years ago and what do you guess will they feel anything about murdering the second one for a single minute?
