A true story about the many tragedies stemming from an unsolved murder and an innocent man rotting in jail for that crime. Drew Whitley spent over eighteen years in prison wrongfully convicted of murdering Noreen Malloy before establishing his innocence.

Written from the perspective of Drew’s civil rights attorney, Lawrence H. Fisher, it takes us inside the treacherous justice system Drew survived while he fought to prove his innocence, and afterward, when he sought accountability from those who caused him to endure such an unimaginable ordeal.

It answers questions like, “Why did it happen?” More importantly, it explains how it could have happened when all the evidence pointed to his innocence and a reckless murder investigation. It even attempts to answer the question many have asked and many more want to. “Who killed Noreen Malloy?”

The book includes unsparing accounts of the criminal and civil justice systems, as well as the homicide detectives, lawyers, and judges that perpetuated this travesty. Readers experience the underworld that trapped Drew for too many years.

At best, it is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and grips readers with concepts of innocence and justice that are both inspiring and infuriating.
