Oh my, an intense, emotional read. The last pages were almost unbearable to read. Time was running out, my heart was pounding and I was afraid to find out how the book might end. Very well written! The book starts off with a frightening scene and then turns towards a plot that has been done before but the author makes it his own. A mentally challenged man in the wrong place at the wrong time is charged with a murder he didn't commit and the police easily manipulate a confession out of him. Set in late 1940s London, England, this is a powerfully emotional tale of the innocence of the mentally child-like and the man-made justice system that is, and always will be, flawed. Sad and compelling.
