I'm not going to say definitively that my slump is over, but it is improving, and I will credit Elizabeth Silver's book, at least in part.
Noa P. Singleton, the protagonist in the book, is on death row, accused of killing another woman, and she is on her last appeal. She is just a few months away from her execution when her victim's mother shows up at her cell with a young lawyer, asking to help Noa apply for clemency. The rest of the book is basically a careful unraveling of the story backing up through all of the incidents that lead to Noa's crime. It is totally filled with spoilers so:
