I just finished reading CONVICTED by Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins!  The cover states that this is a story of a crooked cop an innocent man and an unlikely journey of forgiveness and friendship.

That only begins to tell the story.  CONVICTED covers racial tensions, anger, guilt, the pressures put on our local police forces around the nation and a look at life behind bars.  White and black.  Guilt and innocence.

This is written following the timeline in the lives of these two men.  A trip to the store leads to a 10 year sentence in a Federal Prison.  The pressure to be an achiever leads to false charges.

God steps in and slowly works in the lives of Jameel and Andrew.  No dramatic overnight changes, but slowly speaking to the hearts of each person.

This is an easy read.  CONVICTED is due to go on sale September 19, 2017.  I was given the privilege to read an uncorrected proof copy of the book in return for an honest review.  If there were a way to give more than 5 stars, this would be the time!
