    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.

    George W. Wharton says: "Better Than His Great Fiction"
    "A return to the old Grisham"
    Overall

    While I am not a fan of some of John Grisham's latest books, Skipping Christmas and the Painted House. This book is a return, for me, to some of his more compelling writing the Last Juror or The Testament.

    While some of the people mentioned in the book have out right condemned Grisham for his telling of the facts - it i certain that two innocent men we imprisoned wrongly while the real killer walked free.

    A truly enjoyable listen.
