Final Argument by Clifford Irving

What Would You Do?"

Imagine you're a defense lawyer but you used to be a prosecutor. Now,imagine you find out a career criminal that you put on Death Row is really innocent of the crime because you discover that the witness statements you used were all lies. Now, imagine that he's going to die in a month. What do you do?

Throw in a heaping handful of racial politics, Florida's fascination with the electric chair and the main characters fractured family life and you've got Clifford Irving's Final Argument. It started out very slow but I kept going and it turned out to be one of the better legal thriller books I've read for a while.

I give this book a "4 stars" - I'm dropping the score because of the slow start.

Reviewed in 2004.
