The book I've been reading aloud to Cliff when we're traveling in the car is "The Innocent Man", by John Grisham. We've enjoyed several of his fiction novels before. But this one isn't fiction, and it isn't novel. Not one bit.
Although it tends to bog down with details during the courtroom stuff, it's riveting, for the most part. And makes you wonder what in the heck ever happened to justice.
Please read the book.
"If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty,
this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this
book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is
fair, this book will infuriate you."
That's what it says on the dust jacket, and it's pretty much true. Read this book.
Because if you're just a little weird, or perhaps march to a different drummer... you could just end up being blamed for some crime you didn't commit. You might even wind up being executed for it.
Thank God for DNA testing.
