Publisher's Summary

Wrongful convictions, long regarded as statistical anomalies in an otherwise sound justice system, now appear with frightening regularity. But few people understand just how or why they happen and, more important, the immeasurable consequences that often haunt the lucky few who are acquitted, years after they are proven innocent.

Now, in this groundbreaking anthology, 14 exonerated inmates narrate their stories to a roster of high-profile mystery and thriller writers — including Lee Child, Sara Paretsky, Laurie R. King, Jan Burke and S. J. Rozan — while another exoneree’s case is explored in a previously unpublished essay by legendary playwright Arthur Miller. An astonishing and unique collaboration, these testimonies bear witness to the incredible stories of innocent men and women who were convicted of serious crimes and cast into the maw of a vast and deeply flawed American criminal justice system before eventually, and miraculously, being exonerated.

Wonderful short

Short story from an anthology, novelization's of true accounts of wrongfully convicted later acquitted people. This short covers a law student for whom the "knock on the door" from the police is where it all began to go wrong for her.
