Unreasonable DoubtBook - 2016
After twenty-five years in prison, Walter Desmond is back in Trafalgar, British Columbia, having been officially exonerated of a crime he did not commit. The new evidence proving his innocence shows corruption at worst, incompetence at best, by the Trafalgar City Police. His attorney is seeking five million in damages, but Walt has not returned home to pursue money or revenge. He just wants to know the why of it. The family of the murdered girl, Sophia D'Angelo, wants Walt returned to prison--or dead. But for Trafalgar's police, including Sergeant John Winters and Constable Molly Smith, the reality is: if Walter didn't kill Sophia, someone else did. The two reopen the case, hitting dead end after dead end in their pursuit of the real killer, walking free all these years. But when a townswoman and a dragon boat woman are attacked by a rapist, the media gets active, and tempers flare.
