Once I picked up this book and started to read, I kept going until I was through. The combination of tight vignettes and images of different sorts of key pieces of evidence about these real cases is fascinating stuff and makes for a powerful picture of what's really going on in our legal system--it's not the kind of thing I've seen before in books about this subject. It reads almost like a surgical operation. The author seems to know his stuff and gets down to the nitty gritty. As somebody who knows the system pretty well myself, it made me take notice that this is precisely the kind of factual reporting that we should be getting from the news media, academia, the legal profession, and officialdom--but nobody else seems to take it on. Another indication of how bad things really are today. I just wish the book was longer.
