It's a story of triumph of a human spirit.

"Drawn" is an easy-to-read account of modern bullying gone wild, an adult "Lord of the Flies." The legal and illegal machinations to cover up so many sins of commission and omission by so many is sadly true.

The books short, conversational sentences make it clear that this evil happened to an actual regular guy we can all know and truly respect for sticking it out through great dehumanization. It's a story of triumph of a human spirit.

It's hard for me to review this one without judging what happened to Timothy Masters. He was accused of a murder he clearly didn't commit and was convicted because a detective didn't want to admit he'd made a mistake?!?!?! I know that kind of stuff happens more often than we know of, but it just killed me to read this story. Throughout the entire thing I just wanted to smack the detective and the prosecutors that were working on this case.

Having said that the story was really good. It was filled with suspense, I think it's because we obviously know how it ends, and all the major plot twists, but I wanted to know exactly how these things played out. With each new chapter I couldn't help but try to figure out what was going to happen in that chapter. It really made me not want to put this one down. I just wanted to keep reading because I wanted to know how this all happened. This one would have made a really good fiction book. Master's life had so many twists in it that I kept thinking to myself "I can't believe this really happened". But it did, which is so sad.

The writing was really good too. Everything just flowed. The writing was more like a conversation than a report or a listing of facts. That's a weird way to describe it, but it was just so easy to read, it felt so natural. I liked that Masters gives us a peek into what was going on in his head while all of this was going on. I can't really imagine going through what he went through, but having his "commentary" made it at least a little more understandable.

This is a well-written book about a horrible tragedy and how it ruined one man's life. It sickens me that this happened, but I'm glad that Masters had the courage to put his story out there.

I've read everything I can get my hands on about Tim Masters, and what happened to him for the last 10 years, ever since I saw the Bill Kurtis program 'Cold Case', which dealt with the murder of Peggy Hettrick, and the sham that was to follow. There are so many evils in what was done to Mr. Masters that's it's simply impossible to list them all. The overwhelming evidence of his innocence was staring them right in the face in 1987, but with a crusading zealot leading the charge, the deck was stacked. To believe that a fifteen year old could do what was claimed, and have the presence of mind to not crack under ten hours of overwhelming interviews strains the senses. Further, to see the smug, smiling, gloating faces of the zealot and his two career climber minions from the DA's office accepting awards for this obscenity was more than I could stand.

I was at first thrilled to learn Mr. Masters had been freed, exonerated, and settled for $10 million in wrongful prosecution lawsuits against both the City of Fort Collins and Larimar County. But then a rage set it at what had been done to him, and the delusional belief of the zealot in charge that he'd done nothing wrong, claiming only to have "gone were the evidence lead us," when any even casual review of the trial testimony makes one wonder if it wasn't a witch hunt from the start. That the minions were bounced from their state paid jobs offered little satisfaction, particularly when the arrogantly smug minions only claimed to follow the lead of the zealot. That didn't work at Nuremburg, and it damn well didn't work in Fort Collins once the truth came out.

Now the zealot stands in the dock himself, a righteous public seeking to punish his actions in the only way left open to it, through criminal prosecution.

This is a must read. If you do not think something so awful could happen to you, just read this book!! It shows in detail how a terrible injustice was done to a young man, who through no fault of his own, became a target of an out-of-control detective and county. They did not care about the truth. All the lies and made up "facts" show there was no pursuit of the truth or justice served. I agree this is an easy read and will hold your interest. I live in Colorado and I can say, my heart broke for Tim and I am so glad he was able to be compensated, and I think he should have gotten even MORE!!! The mother in me wanted to comfort Tim. I certainly hope the detective, Broderick, ends up in the same prison Tim had to endure day after day.

Bottom Line Up Front: never, Never, NEVER speak with a law enforcement official without an Attorney present!!!

"Drawn To Injustice" is both a tragic tale and a strong reminder that power corrupts and the result of complacency can be evil. The book is extremely well written and takes the reader along for an amazing ride (as tragic as that ride often is). The end result is that the reader will be forced to ponder the following:

1) Exactly how many innocent people are currently imprisoned in the U.S.?

2) Should the officials responsible for our justice "system" sacrifice their own freedom for such negligent performance?

3) Should Public Education be re-evaluated? For instance, we are taught as children that the Police are our friends and that our legal system is just. Much like the Santa Claus lie, we grow up to discover that these statements are untrue. Perhaps it is time to re-frame our civics outline at the elementary school level:

From: The Police are our friends.

To: The Police may or may not be your friend. If a Police officer chooses to lie about your behavior, you will most likely be convicted and punished. The best course of action if a police officer wants to speak with you is to get an Attorney and not say ANYTHING until that Attorney is present.

From: The U.S Legal System is the best in the world - it is not perfect but it is as good as there is.

To: The U.S. Legal System is broken. We imprison more citizens per capita than any other developed nation on the planet. Regardless of your guilt or innocence on a particular matter, you may well be unfortunate enough to be charged.
