I don't usually like or read the Novellas within series but read this one as the library had a copy. Have to say I loved this one, which I think has set it up nicely for the next book & linked in very well with the previous book. Great emotions were exposed in this book about events around the death of Penn's wife (which happened before the first book in the series) and sone of the reasons Penn went back to Natchez other than his wife's death.

Book description
Death is the end, and if a man doesn't speak before it silences him, then his deepest secrets go with him.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes an e-original novella featuring former prosecutor Penn Cage, a story of family secrets and justice denied, plus an excerpt from his new novel, Natchez Burning.

When a heart attack sends Penn's father, Tom Cage, to the ER, Tom begs that his son be brought to his side to hear a dying declaration. But when Penn arrives, Tom denies ever making the request—keeping his secrets for another day.

The emergency hurls Penn back to a chilling case in Houston, where he worked in a DA's office known as the "death factory," which sent more killers to death row than any other in America. While Penn cares for his ailing wife, a tormented forensic technician brings him evidence of a crime lab in chaos, throwing past convictions into doubt and begging Penn to prevent an imminent travesty of justice. With the desperation of a man fighting death in his own home, Penn must find a way to bring the machinery of the death factory to a halt.
