I listened to this book on audio CD on my commutes to and from work. Was completely enthralled. From my work as a public defender, defending people accused in criminal cases, I already knew of the problem of false identifications. This story makes it indisputable that false ID really happens. People like Cotton play a role in answering questions to police when they are unsure of their answers. And the police played a subtle role in persuading certain witnesses to corroborate circumstantial facts. The victim played her part in being so sure of herself in her identification of who turned out to be -- the wrong guy! A book worth studying, exploring further.
I also had the honor and opportunity of hearing the authors speak when they stopped in Kansas City as part of their book tour shortly after publication.
