A brutal murder is committed in the Florida Everglades. Eight years later, a principled Harvard law professor tries to save the convicted man on death row who swears he's innocent of that crime. For the small-town detective who investigated the killing, however, there's no question he caught the right man--and no last-minute intervention is going to keep that cold-blooded killer out of the electric chair. The clock is ticking ... and a man's life is on the line. But nothing is what it seems. Someone is the lethal mastermind of a deadly game ... and all roads lead back to the site of that long-ago murder--where, this time, there are two intended victims.
