False Convictions

Tim Green, Author . Grand Central $25.99 (292p) ISBN 978-0-446-40152-4

A brisk plot with plenty of surprises more than makes up for stock characters in bestseller Green's entertaining third novel featuring Dallas attorney Casey Jordan (after Above the Law ). Casey is committed to working with the Freedom Project, a nonprofit group dedicated to exonerating the wrongly convicted. The group's founder, billionaire Robert Graham, offers Casey's legal clinic an annual pledge of $1 million to take on a couple of high-profile cases a year. Using DNA analysis, Casey proves the innocence of Dwayne Hubbard, a black man who may have been framed by the police, judge, jury, and lawyers for a female college student's murder 20 years earlier. Meanwhile, TV news journalist Jake Carlson believes that Graham isn't the altruistic, humble philanthropist he claims to be. Jake and Casey begin an uneasy alliance to scrutinize Graham's business dealings. Green credibly explores Casey's enthusiasm for the law and helping the poor. (Feb.)
