    When Ron Williamson signed with the Oakland A's in 1971, he said goodbye to his hometown of Ada, Oklahoma, to pursue his dreams of big-league glory. Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad habits. He moved in with his mother and slept 20 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 reasons that were never clear, police suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz.

    Overall

    John Grisham has told a shocking tale in a most gripping manner in this book. As great as his fiction has been, this book sets a new mark for his skills as a writer. I listened to the book while exercising and I did not miss an exercise session while moving through The Innocent Man because I could not wait to learn the next twist and turn in this convoluted account of misjustice. Buy it!

    This audio program is a brilliant analysis of the tsunami of globalism. And it is especially relevant in the face of protests against the World Trade Organization and the struggles facing a backward Syria without Haffez Assad. Download and start listening.

    Overall

    While several of the examples and scenarios are outdated due to the current political climate, many valuable observations and interpretations are still to be found. Very readable. I bought the hard copy just to be able to go back for review of key points.
