    Attorney Dani Trumball works with the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, defending cases of the wrongfully convicted. Twenty years ago Becky Whitlow was convicted of setting her house on fire, killing her three sleeping children. She had been drinking that night, but she swears she did not set that fire. Fire Marshall and experts testify that an accelerant was used and it was clearly arson. Dani will do whatever it takes to free Becky of prison and restore her innocence. Getting justice in this case Attorney Dani Trumball works with the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, defending cases of the wrongfully convicted. Twenty years ago Becky Whitlow was convicted of setting her house on fire, killing her three sleeping children. She had been drinking that night, but she swears she did not set that fire. Fire Marshall and experts testify that an accelerant was used and it was clearly arson. Dani will do whatever it takes to free Becky of prison and restore her innocence. Getting justice in this case may test not only Dani’s legal talents but also the limits of her own heart. Dani will do whatever it takes to free Becky of prison and restore her innocence. This was quite an emotional roller coaster of a read. I couldn't help but feel sorry for Becky and rooted for Dani to make it right. Up and down ... hope and disappointment... time and time again. It's a well written legal thriller with a riveting plot, and skillfully drawn characters. Dani is particularly credible in her heroic struggle, not only in saving the life of a wrongfully accused woman, but also as the wife of a man facing his own demons and the mother of two young children. Many thanks to the author / Yankee Clipper Press / Independent Book Publishers Association / Netgalley for the digital copy of this heart-wrenching legal thriller. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

I won this as a kindle book. I hate reading from a kindle. Not as bad as audio books which is impossible for me.

    3.5 Stars. This is a fun read amongst legal thrillers. A book that shows the downside to legal proceedings and how the system isn't the greatest. Hard work is needed to help the innocent as really, aren't we all guilty and then proven innocent when we are on trial? There were definitely some suspenseful moments within this roller coaster of a read. Will she or will she not? Will they or will they not? The back and forth keeps you on your toes. Dani wants nothing more than to help the innocent... 3.5 Stars. This is a fun read amongst legal thrillers. A book that shows the downside to legal proceedings and how the system isn't the greatest.

Dani wants nothing more than to help the innocent... but at what cost? While I do think this can be read as a standalone and didn't feel lost within the main part of the story, I do wish I had maybe read the first five in order to get a more attachment to Dani herself. However, the construct the overall crime and the revelations that come up within the trial were fascinating to read.

    Dani Trumball is a senior attorney with the Help Innocent Prisoners Project (HIPP). A friend asks her to look into the case of Becky Whitlaw. Twenty years ago, Becky was a widow living in Texas. A devastating house fire leaves her three young children dead. A Fire Investigator claims it was arson, and Becky finds herself arrested, convicted, and put on death row a short time later. After interviewing Becky, Dani decides to take the case. She believes that Becky is telling the truth...she didn't Dani Trumball is a senior attorney with the Help Innocent Prisoners Project (HIPP). A friend asks her to look into the case of Becky Whitlaw. Twenty years ago, Becky was a widow living in Texas. A devastating house fire leaves her three young children dead. A Fire Investigator claims it was arson, and Becky finds herself arrested, convicted, and put on death row a short time later. After interviewing Becky, Dani decides to take the case. She believes that Becky is telling the truth...she didn't set the fire. This is another good addition to Marti Green's Innocent Prisoners Project series. Reading this story was like riding an emotional rollercoaster. Just when you think Dani is going to get the case overturned, something goes wrong. Dani and her family have moved across the country when her husband gets a job as the Dean at Stanford Law School. As they get used to life on the west coast and Dani works on Becky's case, wildfires threaten their home and an illness threatens her husband's life. I like this series because I always learn new and interesting facts. This time I learned about arson investigations and how many of the investigators have no scientific background. I also found out that there are still some states that do not give any compensation to prisoners who have been locked up for years but later proved innocent. This book also shows some major flaws in our justice system. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

    I was very happy to get this new book by Marti Green as I have read all of her other books. This one was just as enjoyable going through the legal process with Dani Trumball. I have always loved Dani's stories and root for her to save innocent lives. This book however, caught me very off guard as the ending was not what I expected for the prisoner nor Dani. Having read all the Dani Trumball books I have found a draw to her and her family. Over all this is a very good read and well written.

The only reason I just could not give this a 5 star is I would have liked a different ending and I would have liked more involvement with Tommy, Dani's side kick.

    Wow. Once I got to chapter 3 I couldn't put the book down. It read really fast and I became very invested in the characters. Dani reminded me of Erin Reagan from Blue Bloods. I didn't realize the book was part of a series so I don't think it is necessary to have read the other books. Read my full review at Girl Who Reads. Wow.

Although it has been almost 4 years since I read book #5 of this series, as soon as I started this story I remembered everything about it like it was only a week ago. This series is absolutely fantastic with terrific characters, drama, humor, passion, as well as heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. There were a lot of heartbreaking tragedies in this story, but the passion for Justice, the truth, and the compassion to help those who are unable to help themselves is what made this an outstanding story. It's certainly not a story that you will want to miss! I know that this story is fictional, but the truth is that this type of thing happens more than anyone wants to admit. There are many who are incarcerated &/or sentenced to death for crimes that they are truly innocent for. There's also an unlimited number of reasons why and how these things happen. I am grateful that there are organizations that try to help them. I believe that books, fictional or not, help bring awareness to others, and I would like to thank the authors for doing this. If it brings one person to donate their time or money in order to help others, I think that's a blessing for everyone. I would definitely recommend this book, series, and exceptional author. I really hope that there will be more of this series coming in the near future!

    Once again the author dips her pen into the defense of those wrongly accused. She does and an excellent job of build empathy for the convicted and the lawyer whose heart is for those serving time for things they didn’t do. I received an advanced digital copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Be prepared for an emotional ride from Marti Green that shows flaws in a justice system that at times has no ethics nor morals and becomes more stubborn.even when logic and facts are presented time after time. A most informative and sometimes disturbing. well written story that I can highly recommend. An independent review thanks to NetGalley

    What a great book I am so moved by this novel, the story about an attorney's efforts to save a woman wrongly convicted of the horrible murders of her three young children. I read Robert Dugoni's glowing review, and he was correct.

    Each of Marti Green’s books are hard to read, for their storylines are based on true stories and for that and that alone make them so much more real! I love her writing and the characters readers are bound to love! I cannot wait for the next one!

    I found myself disappointed with the conclusion, but as other reviewers have said, sometimes even when all the hoops are jump through and all the possible avenues are exhausted, truth falls short. I can't see myself reading another book like this for a letdown.
