Format: Paperback
First, I will admit to not having read this book in its entirety. I just could not continue reading it. I think one must remember it is the sister of the convicted murderer Kerry Lyn Dalton writing the book, therefore it is biased--as one would expect it to be coming from a person who obviously loves her sister. I have compassion for the author Victoria--I am sure she never imagined being in the position she is in.

I am the cousin of the victim (Irene Louise May) who was murdered. So, of course, my opinion will no doubt be biased as well. My cousin Irene Louise May (she always went by Louise with her family), went missing many years ago and left 3 young children without a mother.

For years we tried finding Louise and it wasn't until well after Dalton and the others were convicted that we discovered what had happened to her. I found articles describing a horrendous, tortured death that nobody should ever have to go through. I then had to break this news to my family. My Dad had to tell Louise' two brothers and her sisters--one sibling decided not to learn the details of her death after we told him it wasn't good. He could not bear to hear it. Louise' father and mother went to their graves without ever knowing what happened to their daughter.

I spoke to the prosecuting attorney about this case to see if Louise's remains had ever been found. I was told that one of the people involved admitted that the body was cut up and buried over different locations on different Indian reservations to make it near impossible for it to ever be found. Apparently they have succeeded in their attempts to hide the body to this date.

The people who testified against Dalton were INVOLVED in this torture and murder. They gave it up.

The author is a passionate, creative, loving, intelligent person who has changed her life, and her life has changed her. Her ability to communicate her emotions to the reader is amazing, and the already fascinating story is made even more so by her raw, emotional passion for her life's mission--not just for Kerry, but for all people facing the ultimate injustice--legal execution for a crime not committed. So much of her own story is yet untold, and I believe that she has much more in store for us in the future as a writer.

Format: Paperback
One listens and watches the media largely unaffected. The stories of the day, while entertaining or informative, remain impersonal. This story is different. It is about real people, good people, people who could be your neighbors. It is about a family who has unfairly suffered at the feet of the United States Criminal Justice System, that very institution established for the purpose of preserving justice for all.

Kerry Lyn Dalton was erroneously and dishonestly sentenced to death. Her story, Cages, is a memorial compassionately penned by her sister, Victoria Thorpe. This true account paints the stains of painful childhood memories, blending them into the larger canvas of the courtroom trial. The recalled events of the family's early years intimately provide insight and stir empathy for the young troubled defendant, whose string of agreeably bad choices place her in a horrific situation.

One might ask, `How do I know for certain that Kerry didn't commit this unthinkable murder?' Yes, the story is shocking by any standard. The witnesses? Three drug addicts who testified against her in return for lighter sentences in other offences. Kerry maintains her innocence. Regardless of opinion or suppositions about guilt, the question to be examined is, `Do the facts substantiate the death penalty?' They do not.

No body (to this day). No weapon. No DNA evidence. No crime scene. And therefore, no remotely justifiable reason to inflict the death penalty.

Read this book, even if only to become educated about the naive assumption that our judicial system reliably delivers equity. Read this book and be humanely moved to action. Kerry Lyn Dalton's grossly wrongful sentencing was not the first in this nation. Let's work to make it one of the very last.

Format: Paperback
This is a thoughtful, beautifully told true story. Throughout the book I felt as if I were living many of the scenes. Use of trial transcripts bring the truth of this sad case to light. It is well worth the read. Please give this a try. I was very moved by the author's ability to paint a picture of her early family life and the tragic circumstances her sister is now having to endure. I look forward to the author's next work!
