I received the book from the author for honest feedback.
In general, this is a good story and a quick read. Because it was so short the characters seemed distant and not very likeable. It is only halfway through that I could connect with some.
Trapped inside a warehouse, four people had to learn the value of trust and justice in a unique setting. Forced to really look at their motives and what had brought them to this point made for some interesting decisions with all involved.
The mystery character added a certain pace and depth to the story that enhanced the plot considerably.
What I didn't like about it was all the obvious writing. It became irritating quickly and I skipped some parts due to this. With some editing this could be a great read.
Nevertheless, thanks for the opportunity. ( )

How would you react?

Take a prosecuting attorney, a defense attorney, and two previously convicted felons who have served their time, imprison them in an abandoned warehouse, feed them information through videotapes and accuse them of conspiring through their plea agreements to convict an otherwise innocent man and frame him for a murder rap resulting in a life sentence; mix them up, put them under pressure, turn up the heat and what do you have?

Panic? Four different individuals reacting in four different ways? Denial? Recognition? Acceptance? All of the above? None of the above?

In The Conviction by John Matthews we see a little of all of the above. For the attorneys, much of it is taken with a shrug; after all that is the way their courtroom world works; the little fish are bargained away by the bigger fish with more information. The “standup guy” keeps his mouth shut and does the time while the bigger fish with more information bargains the “standup guy’s” freedom away. For the criminals, there is no remorse for the guy that took the heat; only a concern that their case should not be re-opened.

But, who’s playing them? Who is this ‘Jordan Davidson’ who is “giving them an opportunity to make it right”? Who does he think he is to take on their system?

The Conviction is an action drama in which four people face four different scenarios in four different ways and are offered an opportunity, albeit a painful one, to make things right. The characters are shallow and consistent with the story. We know little about them except a little about their sources of motivation. ( )
