A man accused of a murder he didn't commit languishes on death row. A crusading lawyer is determined to free him. This legal thriller has one crucial difference: justice is not served in the end. In 1986, Kris Maharaj was arrested in Miami for the murder of his ex-business partner. A witness swore he saw him pull the trigger and a jury found him guilty and sentenced him to death. But he swears he didn't do it. Twenty years later, he's bankrupted himself on appeals and been abandoned by everyone but his wife. Enter Clive Stafford Smith, a charismatic public defender with a passion for lost causes. His investigation takes him from Miami to Nassau to Washington as he uncovers corruption at every turn. Step by step, Clive dismantles the case, guiding us through the whole legal process and revealing a fundamentally broken system whose goal is not so much to find the right man as to convict.--From publisher description.
Shares the story of the most discouraging case of the author's career, during which he defended an innocent Miami businessman whose murder conviction reflects disturbing and fundamental flaws in today's legal system.
