Editorial Reviews

Review

“Caldwell eloquently evokes Mosley’s struggles to have faith in a justice system that had so obviously failed him.”—Publishers Weekly



“A gripping portrait of a man wrongly accused, who, despite his experiences within a flawed justice system, maintained his sense of dignity and hope.”

—Booklist



“Part courtroom drama, part Eat, Pray, Love–style memoir, part social-injustice exposé. The story of a powerful friendship.”—Chicago Magazine

Before beginning her writing career, Laura was a partner in a Chicago law firm, specializing in medical malpractice defense and entertainment law. In 2001 she joined Loyola University Chicago School of Law and has taught Advanced Litigation Writing and International Criminal Law among others.
