Clearwater Run (Woody Thomas, Defender)
A MAN WHO swears he is innocent faces execution in Florida’s electric chair. Retired Public Defender, Woody Thomas, fights doubts of the man’s innocence, the police, the system, an assassin, and his own past to save his client’s life. * * * IT HAS BEEN five years since Jon Clayton was convicted of the rape and execution style murder of Donella Nash. Clayton still swears he is innocent, but he had a record of violence and the bullet found in Nash’s head came from his pistol. It is springtime in an election year and, as part of the Governor’s war on crime, Jon Clayton is scheduled to be executed in October. Woody Thomas, an ex-Public Defender, is appointed by the court to pursue Clayton’s final appeal. Woody relives the trial through the transcripts, then locates and questions the witnesses. The case looks solid, but federal agents begin to follow him, local police try to frame him, and someone is trying to kill him. As Woody’s troubles mount, the murder case begins to fall apart and the Governor signs Clayton’s death warrant-five months early.
