The Innocent Man Book Description :

__________________ ***NOW A MAJOR NETFLIX SERIES*** A gripping true-crime story of a shocking miscarriage of justice, from international bestselling thriller author John Grisham, author of A Time to Kill, The Firm and The Whistler. In the baseball draft of 1971, Ron Williamson was the first player chosen from Oklahoma. Signing with Oakland, he said goodbye to his small home town and left for California to pursue his dreams of glory. Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad habits - drinking, drugs and women. He began to show signs of mental illness. Unable to keep a job, he moved in with his mother and slept 20 hours a day on her sofa. In 1982, a 21 year-old cocktail waitress, Debra Sue Carter, was raped and murdered, and for five years the crime went unsolved. Finally, desperate for someone to blame, police came to suspect Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were finally arrested in 1987 and charged with murder. With no physical evidence, 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. But as Grisham methodically lays out, there was no case against him. Ron Williamson was wrongly condemned to die. If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book 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. __________________ In 2018, THE INNOCENT MAN was adapted by Netflix into a gripping six-part true crime series. __________________ 'A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos' - Irish Independent 'John Grisham is the master of legal fiction' - Jodi Picoult 'The best thriller writer alive' - Ken Follett 'John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers' - Teleg

Ghost of the Innocent Man Book Description :

One of the Best Books of 2017: National Public Radio, San Francisco Chronicle, Library Journal, Shelf Awareness "Remarkable . . . Captivating . . . Rachlin is a skilled storyteller." --New York Times Book Review "A gripping legal-thriller mystery . . . Profoundly elevates good-cause advocacy to greater heights--to where innocent lives are saved." --USA Today "A crisply written page turner." --NPR A gripping account of one man's long road to freedom that will forever change how we understand our criminal justice system During the last three decades, more than two thousand American citizens have been wrongfully convicted. Ghost of the Innocent Man brings us one of the most dramatic of those cases and provides the clearest picture yet of the national scourge of wrongful conviction and of the opportunity for meaningful reform. When the final gavel clapped in a rural southern courtroom in the summer of 1988, Willie J. Grimes, a gentle spirit with no record of violence, was shocked and devastated to be convicted of first-degree rape and sentenced to life imprisonment. Here is the story of this everyman and his extraordinary quarter-century-long journey to freedom, told in breathtaking and sympathetic detail, from the botched evidence and suspect testimony that led to his incarceration to the tireless efforts to prove his innocence and the identity of the true perpetrator. These were spearheaded by his relentless champion, Christine Mumma, a cofounder of North Carolina's Innocence Inquiry Commission. That commission--unprecedented at its inception in 2006--remains a model organization unlike any other in the country, and one now responsible for a growing number of exonerations. With meticulous, prismatic research and pulse-quickening prose, Benjamin Rachlin presents one man's tragedy and triumph. The jarring and unsettling truth is that the story of Willie J. Grimes, for all its outrage, dignity, and grace, is not a unique travesty. But through the harrowing and suspensefu

Getting Life Book Description :

"On August 13, 1986, the day after his thirty-second birthday, Michael Morton left work to pick up his three-year-old son Eric from the babysitter. When he arrived, the sitter told him Michael's wife, Chris, had never dropped their boy off. He knew instantly something was wrong--and when he called his home line and a sheriff answered the phone, he knew it was worse than he could have imagined. Eric was safe, but Chris Morton had been beaten to death in the couple's bed. The Williamson County Sherriff's office wasted no time in pinning her murder on Michael, despite having absolutely no physical evidence that he had committed the crime--and indeed, as would be revealed nearly a quarter century later in court transcripts, despite Eric's insistence that "Daddy wasn't there" and a narration of details of the crime he could only have known through first-hand witness. The sheriff and district attorney in Michael's case never shared that transcript with the defense or, more importantly, the jury. GETTING LIFE is a sensational story of murder, injustice, and twenty-five years spent behind bars before Michael Morton was released on October 4, 2011 on the basis of exculpatory physical evidence of the real killer's guilt, which had been in the evidence locker the whole time and known to the prosecuting attorneys"--

America's Best Crime Writer Barry Bowe delivers another hard-boiled crime saga inspired by a true story from his roots in Delaware County, PA. The innocent man is arrested by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and charged with being a child-predator. The arrest garners so much publicity that law enforcement determines to leverage a conviction even after a search of his residence fails to find a computer. And even after they determine they arrested the wrong man.Believing he's guilty, his family abandons him, his employer fires him, and his community shuns him.Prior to arranging bail, Stanley Zaleski finds himself in the same cell with Rex Wildman, a charismatic man who also happens to be a criminal psychopath without a conscience. This meeting leads to four-way alignment that also includes Beauty Honeycutt, a battered topless dancer with a body that won't quit, and Cruzan ventriloquist Whitey Oldenburg who can't make his dummy speak without moving his lips.Unbeknownst to the innocent man, that trio is planning to rob the Turf Club on Breeders' Cup Day. Which leads to a finish every bit as wild as Pulp Fiction. And, of course, there's a love story in the midst of everything.

Confessions of an Innocent Man Book Description :

"What was it that I did to survive? Where did those ideas come from? Where did I find the resolve to enact them? At the time of my release, I had no ready answers beyond that I did what seemed natural and necessary. In looking back, I realize that the peculiarities of my personality helped me to adopt strategies that allowed for the reclamation of my identity and my integrity while in the hands of barbarians. Yet what I did is neither remarkable nor courageous nor beyond the capabilities of any person that finds himself in similar circumstances. What I have come to believe is that there exists in all of us the potential to stand and fight and reclaim." — William Sampson On Sunday, December 17, 2000, Canadian engineer William Sampson stepped outside his house in Riyadh only to be hauled into a car and beaten by two Saudi men he didn’t know. Within an hour, he was incarcerated in one of the city’s most notorious jails. Within two months, he was tortured into a confession of responsibility for a wave of car bombings he did not commit. Sometime in that first year, he was sentenced to death in a secret trial. For two and a half years, Sampson was continually subjected to beatings and torture, convinced his death was just around the corner. Inept diplomacy failed him but human rights groups took up his cause and on August 8, 2003, he was finally freed in a controversial prisoner exchange. It wasn’t until February 2005 that Sampson’s name was officially cleared when a British inquest exonerated him of the crimes. Angry, intelligent, and compelling, Sampson places his personal story within the context of the geopolitics that engineered his fate, and in doing so has crafted a searing exposé of Western foreign policy in the Arab Middle East.
