Reviews

In this moving, well-researched account of the insanity defense...Vinocour does a fine job explaining the defense in layman's terms. Sterling prose helps make this a page-turner.
A deeply moving tale of what happens when we 'treat' severe poverty and mental illness through the criminal justice system. Drawing on her firsthand experience and expertise with a modern-day insanity defense trial, Susan Vinocour writes like a novelist, showing us in riveting detail just how injustice operates.--David Cole, national legal director, ACLU, and author of Engines of Liberty
