In this instant #1 New York Times bestseller, The Guardians, John Grisham delivers a classic legal thriller—with a twist.
“Terrific…affecting…Grisham has done it again.”—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
“A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes.”—Associated Press
In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues, no witnesses, and no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s.
Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence with no listening audience… not a single person on his side. In desperation, he writes a letter to The Guardians, a small nonprofit ministry run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.
Guardian accepts only a few innocent cases at a time. Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.
They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.
