Anatomy of Innocence : Testimonies of the Wrongfully Convicted Hardback
Edited by Laura Caldwell, Leslie S. Klinger
Long thought to be statistical anomalies in an otherwise sound justice system, wrongful convictions-we are just beginning to learn-happen with frightening regularity.
But very few people understand just how they happen and, more importantly, the consequences.
Now, Anatomy of Innocence tells the stories of more than a dozen innocent men and women who were convicted of serious crimes and cast into the maw of a vast and deeply flawed American criminal justice system before eventually being exonerated.
Here, each "exoneree" is paired with a high-profile mystery and thriller writer to produce a unique collaboration.
By joining such master storytellers with exonerees, Anatomy of Innocence presents the tragedy of wrongful conviction with a stark and fiery clarity.
