The prosecution's case was built on junk science and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts. Dennis Fritz was found guilty and given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was sent to death row.
If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this audiobook 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.

Better Than His Great Fiction
John Grisham has told a shocking tale in a most gripping manner in this book. As great as his fiction has been, this book sets a new mark for his skills as a writer. I listened to the book while exercising and I did not miss an exercise session while moving through The Innocent Man because I could not wait to learn the next twist and turn in this convoluted account of misjustice. Buy it!

A return to the old Grisham
While I am not a fan of some of John Grisham's latest books, Skipping Christmas and the Painted House. This book is a return, for me, to some of his more compelling writing the Last Juror or The Testament.
While some of the people mentioned in the book have out right condemned Grisham for his telling of the facts - it i certain that two innocent men we imprisoned wrongly while the real killer walked free.
A truly enjoyable listen.
