John Grisham - The Innocent Man - Unabridged Audiobook with Text


John Grisham - The Innocent Man - Unabridged Audiobook with Text
John Grisham tackles nonfiction for the first time with The Innocent Man, a true tale about murder and injustice in a small town (that reads  like one of his own bestselling novels). The Innocent Man chronicles  the story of Ron Williamson, how he was arrested and charged with a  crime he did not commit, how his case was (mis)handled and how an innocent  man was sent to death row. Grisham's first work of nonfiction is shocking,  disturbing, and enthralling--a must read for fiction and nonfiction  fans.  Daphne Durham

Book Description
John Grisham’s first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small town  justice gone terribly awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller  yet. In the major league draft of 1971, the first player chosen from the  State of Oklahoma was Ron Williamson. When he signed with the Oakland  A’s, he said goodbye to his hometown of Ada and left to pursue his dreams  of big league glory. Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad  habits - drinking, drugs, and women. He began to show signs of mental  illness. Unable to keep a job, he moved in with his mother and slept  twenty hours a day on her sofa.

In 1982, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress in Ada named Debra Sue Carter  was raped and murdered, and for five years the police could not solve  the crime. For reasons that were never clear, they suspected Ron Williamson  and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were finally arrested in 1987 and  charged with capital murder. With no physical evidence, the prosecution’s case was built on junk  science and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts. Dennis  Fritz was found guilty and given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was  sent to death row.

If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty,  this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this  book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is  fair, this book will infuriate you.
