Rufus Harms, to the casual onlooker, is a loser and a nobody. He has been in prison for 25 years for the brutal killing of a young girl. But a letter, smuggled to him by his brother, reveals the thread of a massive miscarriage of justice which threatens to unravel the fabric of the highest legal establishment in the country - the Supreme Court - and reveal the horror of corruption and murderous self interest at its core.

It is when Harms escapes from prison and John Fiske makes a chilling connection that they realise the enemy is buried deep within the American system of Justice and is completely ruthless when protecting the truth...Hide synopsis
I have loved all of Baldacci's work since I first read The Christmas Train years ago. His ability to skillfully sustain and then intertwine multiple plots is incredible.
