Editorial Reviews

Bill Kurtis
Jim Rix takes us on a remarkable journey inside an American tragedy. He helped win his cousin's freedom from Death Row and now he documents the chain of errors that put him there. The story will chill your belief in the American justice system. With gripping details that can only come from one who has lived the horror, Rix makes us realize that one wrongful conviction is a tragedy for us all.
The Federal Lawyer - Daniel Kaplan
Rix didn't think much of it when his mother casually said, to him, "You have a cousin on death row, and he's innocent." But Rix was curious and wrote to his cousin, Ray Krone. In response Rix received Krone's factually compelling account of having been wrongly convicted and sentenced to death. Krone's case quickly turned into a sort of hobby for Jim Rix - although using the word "hobby" here is a bit like using it to describe Lance Armstrong's cycling.
Sister Helen Prejean - Helen Prejean
A must for readers of true crime and anyone wondering why so many innocent people are convicted in America. The book satisfies from start to finish, from the opening of Ray Krone’s horror story, through the compelling analysis of what went wrong and on to the startling conclusion...
Rachel King
Jim Rix has written an astonishing memoir about his cousin Ray Krone’s wrongful conviction for a 1991 Arizona murder. Rix meticulously details every aspect of police corruption, prosecutorial misconduct, defense incompetence, expert witness tampering and jury shenanigans that led to Ray’s decade-long nightmare. But Rix doesn’t stop there. He dissects each problem, then with careful research explains how it is not an isolated incident but part of a larger pattern of problems

Meet the Author

In 1992, Rix learned that he had a cousin on Arizona’s Death Row. He had never met Ray Krone but soon became convinced of Ray’s innocence and subsequently spearheaded an effort to free him. Ray Krone was granted a second trial but in 1996 was again convicted of murder. Rix continued his efforts and in 2002 Ray Krone became the 100th Death Row exoneree after crime-scene DNA implicated a convicted sex offender.
Having taken Rix eleven years to write, it chronicles the monumental effort of family and friends to free Ray Krone, analyzes what the author learned about the criminal justice system, and builds a strong circumstantial case that the convicted sex offender now serving a life sentence for the murder of Kim Ancona didn’t kill her either.

Today Rix lives high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at Lake Tahoe.
