Editorial Reviews

Review

"This great study in the human cost of wrongful convictions should be mandatory reading for all of those involved in the criminal justice system." -- George Schiro, lab director Scales Biological Laboratory, Brandon, Miss. 
"John Ferak has carved his necessary true-crime niche with another fascinating exploration of unalloyed evil in overlooked places, and a dysfunctional judicial system. A chilling piece of journalism."--Ron Franscell, author of THE DARKEST NIGHT and MORGUE: A LIFE IN DEATH
"In John Ferak's riveting account, FAILURE OF JUSTICE, the common denominator was an overzealous police investigation that generated false confessions and false evidence. The unbelievable story of the Beatrice 6 provides a wake-up call at a time when serious wrongful convictions continue to come to light with disturbing frequency."  -- Brandon L. Garrett, Justice Thurgood Marshall Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law. 
"The book is just so well-written ... It's just a fascinating read."  -- Brian Vakulkas, radio host, HAVING READ THAT, KSCJ-1360 AM-1360 Sioux City, Iowa 
"One of the most bizarre stories I've ever heard of." -- Burl Barer, EDGAR award-winning true-crime author, host of Outlaw radio's TRUE CRIME UNCENSORED  

From the Author

In his latest thrilling true crime book, bestselling and award-winning author John Ferak explores the murder, investigation, trial, conviction and eventual exoneration--the largest such ever in the United States--of the Beatrice 6.
From The Bestselling Author of BODY OF PROOF and DIXIE'S LAST STAND
