What are you talking about, quit. Ever seen a man executed.
Moving in the shadows, picking his spots, Reacher gets closer and closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. This proves true when, despite having no history of racist inclinations in his rulings, Noose refuses Jake's perfectly reasonable request for a change of venue, even though the racial make-up of Ford County virtually guarantees an all-white jury.
Carl Lee is arrested and Brigance agrees to defend him. Soon Reacher is teamed with a young defense lawyer who is working against her D. You Jake, that's how. Brigance gets a psychiatrist to prove that Carl Lee was indeed insane while committing his act, and the state gets an opposing psychiatrist to assert he was completely sane and therefore culpable.

And she drops some thirty feet down to the creek bottom below.
Ellen appears to be interested in Jake romantically, but the married Jake resists her overtures. This is the gallery for you to peruse. They'll come looking for something to eat. There are no more points of law to argue here.
