Intriguing, but....

I love a good redemption story and the plot does seem intriguing. But there's one thing holding me back, and it's not even the fault of the author. I've been growing out of the crime books that threaten the main characters with harm because they never seem to go through with it. When happy endings are an almost constant, even with crime books like this, the "will clearing his name cost him his life?" has no real tension. You know the protagonist will survive, it's practically a given in this genre.

That being said the premise does stand out, the writing is well done, and I would love to be proven wrong.
