Great book, as usual, from Mr. Grisham. It took me longer than normal to read it; I had a lot going on in my life at the time. My son read it and enjoyed it as well, in fact, he liked it so much, that it made a Grisham fan of him and bought more of Mr. Grisham's books.

I'm glad Grisham told this story, as it's important to expose the flaws in our system and what was done to this man. I did find it a little hard to get through, just because of the way it was written.You should read it anyway, or at least scan it.

Turow takes time and effort to demonstrate just how it is possible for someone to be convicting of a murder he didn't commit. This, along with Trial by Fire should lay to rest any notions of the efficacy of our justice system, let alone the death penalty.
