Publisher's Summary

How do you confront your husband when you don't want to know the truth?
Twenty years ago Dennis Danson was arrested and imprisoned for the brutal murder of a young girl in Florida's Red River County. Now he's the subject of a true-crime documentary that's whipping up a frenzy online to uncover the truth and free a man who has been wrongly convicted.
A thousand miles away in England, Samantha is obsessed with Dennis' case. She exchanges letters with him and is quickly won over by his apparent charm and kindness to her. Soon she has left her old life behind to marry him and campaign for his release.
But when the campaign is successful and Dennis is freed, Sam begins to discover new details that suggest he may not be quite so innocent after all....

Fantastic Original Book

I really enjoyed this book it was totally original. The premise of the story was intriguing, what makes an ordinary British woman fall in love with an American murderer on death row? The way in which this question was dealt with had me gripped from page one and I could barely stop until it was finished. The narration was really good and Christina really conveyed Samantha. The ending was excellent tense and nerve shattering with a final twist. My only criticism would be that I would have liked the portrait of Samantha to have been drawn out a bit more. The press described her in a certain way, but this was never confirmed by Amy Lloyd in her narrative and I felt that I really wanted to know what she actually looked like and if this had any bearing on her actions. Overall a brilliant book.
