                      No one is innocent in this story ...

                      The unmissable new standalone from the no.1 bestseller of The Good Turn

                      First Rule: Make them like you.

                      Second Rule: Make them need you.

                      Third Rule: Make them pay.

                      They think I'm a young, idealistic law student, that I'm passionate about reforming a corrupt and brutal system.

                      They think I'm working hard to impress them.

                      They think I'm here to save an innocent man on death row.

                      They're wrong. I'm going to bury him.
