Anthony Ray Hinton's story is not for the faint of heart. Unjustly accused and then imprisoned for a murder he did not commit, he spent 30 years of his life on death row. His lawyer, Bryan Stevenson, reads his own foreword, which whets our appetite. The incredible details of Hinton's trial and eventual release are narrated in an honest, easy style by Kevin R. Free. Listeners may generally prefer an author to narrate his memoir, but Free gives us the sense we are hearing from a young Hinton. He captures the Southern rhythms of Hinton's speech with a natural cadence that brings us closer to his pain--when he calls out for Mama and prays for a miracle, we are right there in his cell.
