My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mike Arnold & Emilia Gardner have written a beautifully scripted book based on a true case from their files…they have accurately and vividly captured the thoughts, doubts, and frustrations of an attorney; as well as the role that not only the jurors and the media have to play but also the judge. A very thought provoking book,written from the point of view of the attorney. The real beauty of this book is that in it’s conclusion you realize that it is the begining of another phase in Gerald’s life. Gerald’s reaction at the time of shooting is as much a part of who he is, and at the end Mike comes to the realization that Gerald will be a changed man when his term is over, and again he would be a by-product of what he has faced inside. A definite must read!
I have voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.
