The Murder Rule by Dervla McTiernan

Professor Rob Parekh who runs The Innocence Project at the University is working to free Michael Dandridge, a man convicted of the brutal rape and murder of Sarah Fitzhugh.

Hannah cannot let that happen.

You see, Hannah’s mother, Laura has been running from this man for over 20 years- the details of WHY, chronicled in the diaries she wrote when she was just 19 years old.
Details which led her mother down a lonely path of alcoholism and distrust.

So Hannah blackmails the Professor to make sure that a spot for her will become available in the already full program, and sets about to make herself invaluable to the team.

While she is convincing the others that she is passionate about saving this man who they believe is innocent – she is working behind the scenes to make sure that he will NOT walk free.

The story alternates between Hannah, in the present, working with the project and Laura’s diary entries from 1994.
