"This is a great read for anyone who thinks the criminal justice system is broken. It is broken and should be called the criminal injustice system; and Nancy has some great solutions to fix it so that maybe, finally, victims will have a real voice." (John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted)

Non-Apologetic & Spunky
I have always loved Nancy Grace, ever since I first saw her on Court TV with her spunky, opinionated, non-apologetic personality. Finally! A lawyer who stands up for everything that should be "righted" within the law! Her book is just as interesting as she is, talking about everything that is wrong with our so-called laws.

extremely biased and unrealistic perspective
The theme of the book is "people who commit crimes are horrible!! The lawyers who represent those horrible people are filthy too, but sometimes very smart!! Watch out!!"
This is a book for people who would say something like "why on earth the mother visited her son in prison is beyond me - let him rot!". If you find that statement a bit callous and idiotic, or even slightly offensive to the human condition, then you might be disappointed with this book, as I was.
The author of this book sees the world as very black-and-white. Everyone is either good or evil, and anyone who has committed a crime is evil. What a boring and frustrating perspective. It's also unproductive in that it does nothing but stir emotions of condemnation. I'm ashamed to see that an attorney is capable of such mindless myopia.
I guess she knows what sells. She is a television personality, after all. Maybe it's my fault for expecting something thoughtful or original.
