Janis Hutchinson is the author of Unfinished Justice, a 1935 historical suspense thriller, praised as “riveting and gripping” by Robert Dugoni, NY Times Best Seller. Ed Bowman, a small-town reporter for the Casey Clarion in Virginia, is unjustly convicted for the murder of his wife, committed by an escaped prisoner whose murder trial he just covered with an exclusive article that virtually guaranteed a guilty verdict. Sentenced to life in the State Penitentiary, and losing faith in God to right his situation, he determines to redeem his shattered life and makes a daring escape to track down the killer in a high-risk chase across six states to the desolate salt flats of Wendover, Utah. But an unexpected betrayal by a befriended Mormon leader throws a wrench into his plans, leaving him with no hope short of a miracle, which culminates in a moving and unexpected conclusion. (Inspired by a true story.)
