A Novel

An intriguing story about half-brothers who reunite in the legal justice system—one as a prosecuting attorney and the other on Death Row—and a race against time for the young prosecutor to save his older brother’s life.

At the age of one, James is adopted by his paternal grandparents, who raise him as their own son, never telling him about his older half-brother or his real parents. Six-year-old Warren is left to his own devices.

Twenty-seven years later, James is flourishing as a prosecuting attorney until an event leads him to discover his older half-brother. Warren is now on Death Row, two weeks away from execution for the rape and murder of a white woman. He is innocent, but can James do anything to save his brother’s life before it’s too late?
