Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this clarion call for the victims' rights movement, lawyer and media commentator Murphy argues that our society's efforts to ensure that no innocent man is convicted are allowing legions of criminals to go free. The victim's rights movement seeks to enact laws that give victims greater access to justice; though victims may file suits against criminals in subsequent civil trials (as did Ron Goldman's family in their wrongful death suit against O.J. Simpson), criminal trials reduce victims' role to State witness. As such, victims frequently find themselves on trial in the court of public opinion (as was Kobe Bryant's accuser), paradoxically forced to defend themselves against the accusations of the accused. Though an excellently and righteously argued point, some of Murphy's solutions seem counteractive at best, such as a plan for victims' attorneys to go up against defense lawyers, a likely way to ramp up the circus-like atmosphere of high-profile trials, which Murphy is also against. Still, she offers some excellent premises by which the balance of justice can be restored to victims, often proving a logical and lucid advocate for her cause, despite a tone that never rises above the level of your average daytime talk show.

I understand that some people find this book disturbing because it removes the cushioned illusion of safety that people prefer to have in regards to why some are victimized, and why they, in turn, can never be. The truth is that anyone of any age, color, socioeconomic status, or gender can be victimized. Murphy points out some serious issues in the treatment of our victimized population by our legal system. Anyone who has experienced this system knows exactly what it is to which Ms. Murphy refers.

Wendy Murphy's book has shed light on the criminal justice system. After finishing the book, I have gained insight into a part of the world that everyone should be made more aware of. As a college student, I don't have much time between homework and well..more homework but I couldn't put this book down. Captivating is an understatement. The stories are real cases and Wendy's flare as an author has proven to be remarkable in displaying them. BUY THIS BOOK...YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. LIFE CHANGING AND ENTHRALLING. I'm on my second read, and I'm still surprised at the stories and how they are handled in and outside the legal system. I gave the book five stars, but I would give it more if I could. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

I learned so much about WHY our legal system doesn't work and no other book tells the truth like this one. Attorney Murphy doesn't hold back when it comes to protecting children. When you read about what really happened to Jonbenet Ramsey you will be shocked and finally know why so many mothers in this country fight to protect their children. That is why I picked up this book and continue to praise Attorney Murphy for her commitment to children's safety and rights.

Wendy Murphy's indictment of injustices and urban legends in our justice system is a must read for anyone who cares about justice in America. Her assessments are often harsh but true. The book is worth just finding out what REALLY happened in the Jon Benet Ramsay case.

Guilty until proven innocent! I found her book nothing but opinionated garbage. She blast DNA in one chapter stating it's unreliable, then swears by it in another. She would love to see the constitution trampled on and rewritten to satisfy her wants and needs. It actually angered me at how she wanted to take so many rights away from innocent Americans for the handful of "criminals" she writes about.

Wendy Murphy is a lawyer who represents victims of violent crime. She goes behind the scenes and shows us how defendants (criminals, the accused) are taken care of by the legal system more than their victims. In fact, often defense attorneys investigate victims and try to put the blame for the crime on them instead of where it belongs.

Since Ms. Murphy comes from a background of having prosecuted criminals, she is well acquainted with defense attorney tactics. She gives us valuable insight into such famous trials as O.J. Simpson's and Robert Blake's and how attorneys (defense and prosecuting) and judges all made mistakes.

Ms. Murphy not only goes into what's wrong with our system but also offers helpful suggestions should the reader ever end up as a victim in criminal or civil court. A well-researched and well-written book.

Highly recommended.

Wndy Murphy hits the nail right on the head. I have seen tthe in's and out's of the court system and it is biased and off kilter, She is 100 per cent right.
