Editorial Reviews

Review

“A legal thriller with a twist: a crazed lawyer and his wife, believing they have been wronged, become a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde and go on a terrifying murder spree. Next on their kill list is the new DA, and her courage in confronting the killers makes this a fascinating read.” —Dennis L. Breo, coauthor of The Crime of the Century: Richard Speck and the Murders That Shocked a Nation

“When murder comes to her town, Erleigh Wiley steps into the shoes of the slain district attorney and finds herself on the killer’s hit list. In A Target on My Back, Wiley tells her personal story of overcoming fear in order to carry out her duty to hold Kaufman County, Texas, together while the killer is brought to justice. Don’t miss it!” —Mike Farris, author of A Death in the Islands: The Unwritten Law and the Last Trial of Clarence Darrow

“Erleigh Wiley is one fearless prosecutor. . . . Her courage in this deadly crisis inspired both Texas and the nation.” —Bill Wirskye, Second District Attorney for Collin County, Texas

A Target on my Back is a unique first-person look into the world of crime-fighting in which the tables have been turned. The author takes the reader on an all-too-real journey into what it means to stand for justice when your very life is in danger. A must-read!” —Robert Kepple, executive director of the Texas District and County Attorneys Association

A Target on Back captures Erleigh Wiley’s journey as a judge then district attorney in Kaufman County, Texas, and the risks that all in law enforcement face every day of their lives.” —Robert Champion, retired special agent in charge, ATF

“John Grisham and Scott Turow had better start looking over their shoulders. . . . Wiley’s engaging, nimble style immediately draws you into the action and proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. It’s a good thing for us all that she lived to tell about it!” —David Dean, Dallas attorney, former Texas secretary of state and chair of the North Texas Crime Commission

“A vivid first-person account of living with danger and armed security twenty-four hours a day.” —David A. Byrnes, Kaufman County sheriff, retired; Texas Rangers captain, retired
