Discussing New Release: Victims Of Circumstances


For twenty years he knew the man who murdered his wife.  He knew he was where he belonged: in a jail cell, never again to see the light of day as a free man.  It didn’t help Chris Redgrave move on, but it was enough.  Then the new city-slicker State Attorney of Palm Beach County came to pay him a visit.  He told Chris of advances in DNA testing.  He told him of recanted witness statements and a racist, good ol' boy culture that mistook an innocent man for a guilty one.  And he told him of Julian Anderson’s release from prison.

As his closure unravels and memories of his wife’s brutal death haunt him once again, Chris wages war with himself over if he can accept that his wife’s true killer has lived free for the past two decades.  But when the new investigation into his wife’s murder unearths clues that indicate Anderson may be guilty after all, Chris is convinced he had it right all along.  Knowing that the politically motivated State Attorney will never admit he made a mistake, Chris is forced to examine just how far he will go to achieve justice.
