This book follows Bryan Stevenson, a young lawyer who finds himself working in Alabama to help wrongly convicted death row prisoners. The story is greatly dependent on one case in particular. Walter McMillian, a young black man who was an upstanding member of his community, was falsely accused of murdering a white woman in the same small southern town where To Kill A Mockingbird takes place. Stevenson finds himself uncovering many lies that were set up by the local authorities in order to ensure McMillian was sentenced to death. Throughout this book, Stevenson not only describes the Walter McMillian case but he also weaves in other personal stories from his many years as a lawyer. Stevenson gives strong statements against racial and legal injustice and touches on the fact that slavery left a legacy for today’s incredibly prejudiced judicial system. 

If you are looking to learn more about how the American judicial system is still flawed and inherently prejudiced, especially in the south, this is a great read.
