When Wendy Murphy was a young prosecutor, she learned that the deck is stacked in favor of criminal defendants. Between their arrest and (potential) conviction, murderers, rapists, and drug dealers get more than a fair shake—they get an unfair advantage, often at the expense of their victims.

In many states, for instance, defendants can subpoena a victim's private medical and counseling files without any justification. They can threaten victims with brutal cross-examinations if they dare to testify. They can put on "dog and pony show" defenses that have nothing to do with the truth—and even lie under oath with virtually no risk of being prosecuted for perjury.

These kinds of injustices make Murphy fighting mad. She's made it her mission to help the victims who get the least protection from our twisted legal system. And in her first book, she guides readers through one horror story after another about judges and lawyers who bend over backward to let the worst offenders go free.

You'll meet judges who unapologetically declare that they care more about their liberal ideology than about the pain and suffering of abuse victims; judges who let child molesters walk free because they're "too frail" to go to prison; defense attorneys who take big money from wealthy child molesters, then twist the Bill of Rights beyond recognition; and even a few prosecutors who go easy on criminals for their own selfish reasons.

Murphy's true stories will shock you, but they will also inspire you to join the fight for a more rational system. This is an important book that is sure to infuriate America's legal establishment. Download and start listening now!

    " A very well written depiction of the uneven playing field in the U.S. Criminal Justice System. The focus is on child sexual predators and introduces sufficient detail aimed at heightening public awareness of the circumstances so that more people will demand changes to the system. "

    " Self serving book that the author uses to push her viewpoint about the justice system. I really took offense to her saying that Martha Stewart should not have been put in jail because all she did was LIE! Do not read this book! "

    " This really deserved 3.5 stars. The author made you think and I always appreciate that. The reason I have it 3 stars rather than 4 was I felt several of the chapters were redundant. I felt she did give you steps to take if you become a victim of a crime or if you want to make a difference. "

    " Great expose on high profile cases and how the media manipulates our understanding of the facts and evidence to help guilty criminals go free. I watch all TV coverage of high-profile cases with a much healthier dose of skepticism than I did before reading this book. "
