  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ken Baumann | 2/12/2014

    " An important book. A deep example of how erudition, perseverance, and trial of thought can potentially save a man's life. And a brilliant tour of the failings and abuses of the American justice system. Read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ken Luehrsen | 2/8/2014

    " Absolutely outstanding book detailing a travesty of justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kim Serene | 2/2/2014

    " A compelling look at the power of narrative. Through analysis of existing evidence and interviews with people on all sides of the case Errol Morris lays out a strong argument for the innocence of a man sent to prison for the grizzly murder of his wife and children. This book is a great read - I couldn't put it down! "

    " If history teaches us anything it's that if you are ever charged with a crime you did not commit you want Errol Morris on your side. He got one murderer exonerated in "The Thin Blue Line" and now takes on the Jefferey Macdonald case. Morris was obsessed with the case for years before even starting this book and the detail shows. And what detail it is. No brief true crime paperback (complete with lurid crime scene photos in the center) is this. No, this is 500 pages of precise and painstakingly catalogued evidence from every, and I do mean every, angle. Over and over Morris demonstrates how there was blunder after blunder in this case mostly because people had already made up their minds and then made the evidence fit their perception. Whether you think Macdonald guilty or not I don't believe any reader who makes it through this book will believe the legal system worked as it should. Eyeopening and more than a little frightening.
