Bill Hylton about this book: Miscarriages of justice can ruin the lives of loved ones as well as the life of one who is wrongfully convicted. One reviewer said the book followed the damage to other characters, which she said were "all originals." In my favorite review the reviewer liked the book so well, in her words, "I didn't want it to end." I have had the same thought many times after reading excellent novels so this reviewer made my day (and perhaps my writing career).
A jury found ex-police sergeant Brad Glover guilty of raping the five-year-old girl he had come to love while sharing an apartment with her mother. He was sentenced to forty years in prison. He nearly died twice at the hands of self-righteous convicts who hated cops and pedophiles. A fellow convict badgered him in the hospital making fun of his claim of innocence. They became fast friends when Glover took his friends advice to continue his goal of helping the little girl despite his conviction.
