The Confession

by John Grisham

In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, Travis Boyette abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row. As Dante's execution date approaches and Travis suffers from an inoperable brain tumor, Trevor decides to do what’s right and confess. But how can a guilty man convince lawyers, judges, and politicians that they're about to execute an innocent man?

In Texas, a man is convinced and sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. Up in Kansas, a man confesses to that very crime once he learns he has a brain tumor and his life is nearly up. The pastor who hears his confession races down to Texas to stop the execution. This race against the clock is thrilling, jaw-dropping, and you won't see the ending coming.
