Reviews

"A forceful plea to reform the toxic entanglement of prosecution, policing, and probation in the criminal justice system."
--Kirkus Reviews


"Hines, a former public prosecutor in Baltimore and now a private defense attorney, debuts with a scathing indictment of the criminal justice system...what makes Hines's account uniquely worthwhile is her detailed and intriguing behind-the-scenes analysis of how prosecutors operate. This passionate firsthand critique will appeal to those interested in criminal justice reform."
--Publishers Weekly
