A diverse ensemble of voices creates a masterful program of personal essays and poems as well as the authors' detailed overview of faults within our criminal justice system. Celebrity Whoopi Goldberg's anger and indignation and journalist Bill Kurtis's more measured approach tie together the case histories of people who have been wrongly convicted of crimes and have spent many years incarcerated before being exonerated. First-person accounts from each man and woman add power and heartbreak to this audio version. Listeners will be astonished to hear how little anger most people express. Their commonality is never having given up on the hope of proving their innocence. Since there's no financial compensation for them, the authors compassionately reveal their goal to raise money through selling this book. S.G.B.
