One of the most frightening books. While the central case is sad, the ancilary injustices cited show how unjust our legal system can when citizens do not get involved and simply take the police at their word.

John Grisham doesn't have his own voice for non-fiction. This was written very much in the style of Capote's "In Cold Blood". Grisham portrays the same sympathy for the characters in the same tone. The jacket of the book claims to infuriate you with the U.S. criminal justice system, but he does little storytelling in the book to prompt any strong emotions. Granted, the facts are well researched, but it wasn't really an impressive work.
