From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Natchez Burning trilogy--Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree, and the upcoming Mississippi Blood--comes this e-original novella featuring former prosecutor Penn Cage, a story of family secrets and justice denied, plus an excerpt from Natchez Burning.
Death is the end, and if a man doesn't speak before it silences him, then his deepest secrets go with him.
When a heart attack sends Penn's father, Tom Cage, to the ER, Tom begs that his son be brought to his side to hear a dying declaration. But when Penn arrives, Tom denies ever making the request--keeping his secrets for another day.
The emergency hurls Penn back to a chilling case in Houston, where he worked in a DA's office known as the death factory, which sent more killers to death row than any other in America. While Penn cares for his ailing wife, a tormented forensic technician brings him evidence of a crime lab in chaos, throwing past convictions into doubt, and begs Penn to prevent an imminent travesty of justice. With the desperation of a man fighting death in his own home, Penn must find a way to bring the machinery of the death factory to a halt.
