Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Rons home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death—in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a mans already broken life…and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, John Grishams first work of nonfiction reads like a page-turning legal thriller. It is a book that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence—a book no American can afford to miss.

Synopsis:

About the Author

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year (his other books are The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, The Chamber, The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury, The Partner, The Street Lawyer, The Testament, The Brethren, A Painted House, Skipping Christmas, The Summons, The King of Torts, Bleachers, The Last Juror, and The Broker) and all of them have become international bestsellers. The Innocent Man (October 2006) marks his first foray into non-fiction.

Grisham lives with his wife Renee and their two children Ty and Shea. The family splits their time between their Victorian home on a farm in Mississippi and a plantation near Charlottesville, VA.

This story makes you weep for being unable to go back in time and change things, and make you look at our 'Justice' system in a completely different light. You will be outraged by the actions of some, disgusted by the lack of action of others, and amazed by the courage of a few....Don't start reading on your luchbreak because you will not be able to put this book down until you read the last page!

Not his usual work. This is a fact based novel and it was very slow going. There is no action only reaction. The book was tedious to read but interesting.
