Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Quite interesting in how to convict an innocent person then take forever to get back to court and reverse the decision

Not a Who Done it
Who done it in this true story is almost beside the point. The mystery is how could the small town cops and district attorney be so dense as to not understand that they're sending an innocent man to prison. But this is mystery enough to make the story well worth reading.

ONE TO THINK ABOUT
NO MATTER YOUR OPINION ON THE FAIRNESS OF THE JUDICAL SYSTEM, THIS BOOK TELLS A GRIPPING TALE. IT'S ABOUT GUILT OR INNOCENCE, RIGHT OR WRONG. AMAZING, AND TRUE.

Sad but True
This is one of the best of John Grisham's books - maybe because it is true. Since so many persons have been exonerated from death row since the development of DNA testing, you wonder how many other people have been put to death unjustly. It makes a good argument against the death penalty and the sad state of justice in the world.
For anyone who supports the death penalty it's a must read.
