Reviews

A tour-de-force deconstruction of Bush's supermax gulag."
Rose has filled in many of the blanks left by most journalistic accounts.... Deserves a wide and appreciative audience."
The crime happens, the mob gathers. Far too often, the question is, which nigger's neck are we going to put the noose around?" -- Gary Parker
"A gripping and brilliant piece of reporting that both lays bare an appalling miscarriage of justice and exposes its origins in the tortured history of the South. I could not put it down."
--Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking

"Just as it has been for nearly twenty years, this case is provoking question and controversy. And so will this book."
--The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

"[D]eeply fascinating...a damning, shameful saga."
--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A compelling legal drama and expose of racism in the justice system."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"About as good a piece of investigative reporting as you're ever likely to get."
--Sunday Times (UK)

"[An] engrossing blend of true crime, legal drama and acute expose of racial antagonism."
--Publishers Weekly

"I have never heard a book talked about this much in all my years with the company."
--Donna Sommer, Books-A-Million, Columbus, Georgia
