There are two cases in this book, although only one case is prioritized and discussed in detail. Both are horrible, terrible, awful, dreadful cases. The murder, of course, was horrific. The word "horrific" is an understatement. Dreadfully, alcohol ensnares a young man and destroys his life and future. Making him an easy target to become a suspect until he is convicted of murder and becomes a mental and financial burden on his family for the rest of his life. Terrible and awful homicide investigation process. Not looking for the perpetrators of the murder based on the available evidence, but fabricating evidence and arguments with the aim of making the targeted people become convicts. I salute those who fought hard to free the convicts who had undergone unfair trials. John Grisham describes this case well, like a novel, but, sadly, it is a true story.
