How would you feel if you were responsible for putting an innocent man behind bars for SIX years?
Unfortunately, that's what happened to Dean Winchester when the body of a murdered and mutilated child got uncovered.
While the mystery aspect of the story was engaging, I found myself gravitating more towards the emotional storm between Dean and Cas. There's guilt from both parties, and a depth of so many layers that make these characters the driving force for Exonerated.
So if you're looking for some Destiel fic that is character driven, with a murder mystery thrown into the mix, then give Exonerated a try!
Word of warning: the mystery involves graphic depiction of murdered and mutilated children. You have been warned!
