Reviews

"Chip has a remarkable talent for uncovering and telling stories. The years he has spent on this book shed light on this fascinating and alarming slice of history." -Derek Jeter
"Startling... A powerful story that examines institutional racism, mortality, medical ethics, and the nature of justice for black men living in the American South... A moving exploration of an unthinkable trespass against an innocent man." -Kirkus
