As someone who has a passion for true crime and finds the criminal justice system incredibly interesting, I was so excited to read this book. It was compelling, well-written, and served to highlight just how complex our criminal justice system is. I was shocked by some of the injustices talked about in this book and was equally sickened by the way we handled it afterwards. If you're interested in learning more about DNA exonerations and the the science behind how innocent people get thrown in jail, this a non-fiction piece you won't want to pass up.
