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.… (lisätietoja)

Interesting and maddening. If there is a hell, I hope there's a special nook for crooked law enforcement and court officers whose desire to win or simply wrap up a case causes innocent people and their families (the accused and the victims) to suffer so much.

I did watch the Netflix special based on this book a year or so ago and am glad I read the book. Much more detail here. Although I thought there was more about Ward and Fontenot in the show compared with the book. I'll have to rewatch it.

If you're a fan of true crime books or books about miscarriages of justice, this one will likely keep you involved and interested. ( )

Enquanto eram realizadas as investigações do caso Debbie Carter, Ada sofreu mais um grande trauma. Outra jovem, a estudante Denice Haraway, de 24 anos, havia desaparecido. A polícia mostrou-se ainda mais "eficiente" nas investigações. Pouco mais de um ano após o desaparecimento de Denice, novamente com a ajuda de delatores e com a produção de dois depoimentos arrancados à força dos suspeitos, o tribunal de Ada mandava mais dois homens para o Corredor da Morte.

Grisham details the life and trial of an innocent man. It is not a reassuring story for those who have faith in our judicial/enforcement organizations. ( )

It’s true in some cosmic sense that the story of every life has value, but not to the writer of nonfiction. Writers of nonfiction narratives learn to pick their subjects with care, because some true stories are much, much more interesting than others. In this case, John Grisham could have conjured up a better story on his own.
 
When Grisham gets into what happened to Williamson and company during their prison stay, The Innocent Man finds its purpose. In describing the wretched food, poor ventilation, and abusive guards—all factors that led to Oklahoma prisons being condemned by Amnesty International—Grisham makes clear exactly what's at stake when the state sends the wrong man to jail.

Grisham is a great storyteller and a fine, no-nonsense writer. He has a well-honed attention to detail. He doesn't degenerate into cliches and he has a natural sense of dramatic structure that ensures the book has a compelling forward momentum.
 
John Grisham here crosses the line from fiction to non-fiction. And it's hard to tell the difference. His prose is still lean and fast-paced and his skilful sketches capture all you need to know about the characters. He explains courtroom procedure and precedent in a simple style that allows a layman to follow the legal labyrinth. Even the plot would fit comfortably between the covers of one of his earlier books, except this story is true.
 
Grisham is a great storyteller but an uninspired writer — he has none of Capote's weird, stark lyricism — but his spare, direct style serves him well here. He expertly dissects each judicial and constitutional outrage with cool precision.
