After two well-deserved years on death row for the inexcusable murder of a family of four, Tobias Butler only scoffed at the Pen Pal mails that adorned his prison cell. The anger dripping from the ink of multiple avengers of the death penalty was quite amusing. And the holier-than-thou sentiments had become boring. Then a letter arrived that created an entirely new mind set for Tobias. Jessica Phang sounded like the real deal. Beautiful, intelligent, wealthy, and obviously captivated with his story, this pen pal could very well be his ticket back to the free world. All he had to do was turn on the charm and Attorney Jessica Phang would be his. As their relationship becomes too good to be true, Tobias swallows his revulsion and plays the game Jessica devises to make the perfect prison break, the perfect romance, and the perfect gift of new found freedom. As the convicted murderer becomes confident in this turn of fate, he somehow misses a few very important details in his legal defense.
Emancipation: Pen Pals and Serial Killers - Story One by Jo Michaels is a thrilling story of suspense and gripping sexual tension that grows more intriguing with each page turned. Just when I think I cannot be more surprised with Michaels’ grasp on a true crime story, she adds another twist to make this reader doubt the outcome. Emancipation is a fast-paced tale that will leave the reader slapping his/her head at the outcome. I really, really enjoyed Emancipation. I cannot wait for the second in the Pen Pal series!
