Do I have any secrets left?
Ex-con Nora Dockson broke free from her trailer park roots and went to law school. She works only for convicted felons, trying to force a flawed system to treat them fairly.
But can she — should she? — help Silvia Simon?
The young single mother insists she’s not guilty of arson-murder. But investigators determined only Silvia could’ve started the fire. The prosecutor argued that Silvia set it to kill her daughter.
Were they wrong? Or is Silvia lying?
In Judge Me Not, Nora finds herself at the murky junction where arson myths and bad-mother stereotypes collide with modern science. This engrossing legal thriller illuminates the problem facing vulnerable women accused of crimes that cannot be overturned by DNA evidence.
