The Innocent Man


A very interesting novel. I love the way John Grisham captures his audience with his thrill seeking, page turning writing style. This time, he was writing about a true story that took place in a small town in Oklahoma in the early 70's.

A trouble young man and a friend were found guilty of a crime they did not commit. Ron was found guilty because of his troubled past and tricky police work. His friend Dennis was found guilty because he would occasionally bar hop with Ron, so to the police he must have helped in the murder and rape of a young women in Ada, Oklahoma.

Its fascinating to see how police forge evidence to what they want it to be when they are pressed to find a suspect and convict the person, no matter what the evidence says. Eventually the truth comes out at the end, but not until years have passed and Ron is almost executed for this horrible crime. Both men spend over 15 years in prison and were freed with no apology from the state or police.

This is definitely an interesting page turner and has you thinking at times, did he do it? But, you have to listen to the evidence, no matter how badly you need a conviction!
