3rd Harlan Donnally book
NIGHT IS THE HUNTER
They call it pulling the trigger. Not by a killer in the night, but by a judge on the bench.
When Judge Ray McMullin confesses to former homicide detective Harlan Donnally his unease about a death sentence he handed down twenty years ago, Donnally immerses himself in the Norteno and Sureno gang wars that left trails of bullets and blood crisscrossing the state and in the betrayals of both cops and crooks alike. His findings force him to question not only whether the penalty was undeserved, but the conviction itself.
