Phelan Tierney sees his mission in life as coming to the aid of the lost, the broken, the despised. This reputation as the justice system's St. Jude compels a woman named Marcheline Whalen to seek him out and ask for his help. Her brother—an Iraq War vet—stands accused of killing a cop. Not just any cop—the most widely respected and deeply loved officer on the local force. What Phelan learns, and what he's obliged to do, will reshape his notions of justice, honor, and compassion forever.BUY THE NOVELLA:
"Phelan Tierney, one of the protagonists of David Corbett's beautiful, bruising The Mercy of the Night, takes a solo first-person turn in the spotlight in this novella .... [and] unearths the heartbreaking story beneath a horrific act. As always with Corbett, it's tough, compassionate, and powerfully written.
