||A novel by Andrew Klavan
||A veteran reporter who is screwing his immediate boss’s wife, is given the job of covering an execution which is due to take place in 12 hours, but he quickly finds that the evidence is less than conclusive and sets out to prove the condemned man innocent, interrupted by the problems created by his personal life.
||One appearance of people in their underwear. A car crash, a car chase, a lot of shouting in the newspaper office and quite a lot of stoic and sad people on death row.
||If you’re really sharp you too have the opportunity of solving the crime – just a hint. I only have one critisism of Clint Eastwood. He likes to put his wives into his films, and so it is with this one. Even by 1999 he should have learnt. This movie is not great, it lost money, but it’s not so terrible you wouldn’t watch it for nothing..
