THE FIRST DAY

Author(s): 

Susannah Chapman has spent the last eight years in prison for a crime she didn't commit. Assistant District Attorney Jared Walker was the one who put her there. When Jared uncovers evidence that could free her, he reopens the case, eager to right old wrongs and see justice done. But soon their relationship grows much more personal. Barbara McMahon's The First Day (3) veers off course when it switches from a mystery about a woman wrongly accused of murder to a saga about the hero's problems with his ex-wife.
