Excellent Book

This book sent chills up my spine.
This is a true story of Ron Williamson and Dennis Fritz, and the harrowing ordeal they both went through for many years. This book is and was a miscarriage of justice for what they both experienced. My heart went out to Ron Williamson when he began to show signs of mental illness. When his parents died, all went down hill from there for him. He was falsely accused of murdering and raping a twenty-one year old girl in 1982 along with Dennis Fritz. Both were arrested and charged with capital murder. Even though they both proclaimed their innocence, they were both sentenced to prison for a crime they didn't commit. Built on no physical evidence, and junk science, both were found guilty. Ron served 14 years in prison, was on death row, and claimed all along he didn't do it. Dennis was given a life sentence. After spending many years in treatment and mental hospitals, Ron finally found the Innocence Project. Too much to say on the subject. This is a must read about small-town justice that went terribly awry.
An excellent thriller to the very end. Both men finally found the peace they deserved.

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.
