NOW A TOP TEN BESTSELLER
You're in love with a man on Death Row in Florida, convicted of a brutal murder twenty years ago.
You're convinced he didn’t do it, and you're determined to prove it. You're part of a mass online campaign that picks holes in the case, uncovers evidence of police incompetence, and agitates for this miscarriage of justice to be overturned.
Now you're married to him, and he’s a free man, his conviction thrown out. You have the rest of your lives to spend together.
You’re overjoyed. After all, he’s innocent.
