I'm sure those who will doubt the author's innocence, but that's the most interesting part. When you really read the transcripts of the trial and look deeply at the evidence, there was never a "smoking gun" - not a SINGLE piece of evidence was ever presented of any wrongdoing of Fleishman. If you doubt Fleishman's assertion of innocence, you can read all the court transcripts yourself (case U.S. v. Nguyen, 11-cr-32, SDNY). I'd love to hear a rebuttal where you point out ANY evidence that is actually related to Fleishman or shows Fleishman doing anything wrong.
Anyway, the only uncomfortable part of reading this book is seeing how it could happen to anybody (including you, the reader). If you are accused of a crime you did not commit and no evidence of the crime can be found, you'll still end up in jail if the jury is incompetent (as this jury was) and if the jury buys the basic argument of "this guy is bad, trust us".
A good read, and a cautionary tale. Keep your head down, and plead "guilty" to any crime even if you didn't commit the crime if it keeps you out of jail, because you cannot fight the government!
Over amped career oriented prosecutors honestly do not care if you are guilty or not. If they can patch together a case brought to them by dishonest agents they will put lipstick on the pig and present it as Miss America. Just like a Russian bureaucracy you will be ground up and spit out with NOT one person caring one way or the other about you.
Not polished prose but a decent informational read.
