Life in prison. That's what Leland Booker got for killing his wife and daughters 40 years ago. But did he really?
When Adam Bennett, an eager and doggedly determined third-year law student, reopens the case, his impassioned conviction that the real killer remains free shakes up a world of questionable characters. It also wins over the reluctant help of lawyer Cate Stokes, former babysitter for Leland's girls.
As the pair dig for legal loopholes armed with scattered leads, the case drags empathic and pensive Cate into a past littered with secrets and a present full of confessions, suppressed evidence and dead witnesses.
Full of riveting twists and turns, Kendall Road tackles the racially biased realities of a justice system gone wrong while keeping readers guessing till the very end in this fourth masterpiece by Janet Heijens.
