Summary
How do wrongful convictions happen, and what are the consequences for the lucky few who are acquitted, years after they are proven innocent? Fourteen exonerated inmates narrate their stories, while another exoneree's case is explored. They detail every aspect of the experience of wrongful conviction, as well as the remarkable depths of endurance sustained by each exoneree who never lost hope
Summary
A collective literary protest against wrongful convictions tells the stories of more than a dozen innocent men and women who were convicted of serious crimes and forced to endure a flawed criminal justice system before their exonerations, in an anthology that includes contributions by Lee Child, Sara Paretsky, Michael Harvey, Laurie King, Phillip M. Margolin and Jan Burke
