The Necklace by Matt Witten


They were a very happy family until one day the daughter is killed by some monster.  It was an ugly death.  It came about because her grandmother was supposed to pick her up at school, but left a message she couldn't do it after the girl's mother had gone to work.  The child never made it home.

Oceanview publishing and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on September 7th.

They find a suspect and take him to trial.  He had confessed to killing her.  But he insisted it was from too many questions through the night with no breaks.  Never the less, he was found guilty and the mother asked for the death penalty and got it.

Twenty years later they are getting ready for the execution.  And the mother has remembered little things that her husband did.  He might be the killer.

As she tries to find proof and tries to save the man on death row, time is running out.  Will she be able to prove it in time?
