"[The author] puts a face to the growing number of men and women exonerated from crimes that kept them behind bars for years?sometimes decades?and that devastate not only the exonerees but also their families, the crime victims who mistakenly identified them as perpetrators, the jurors who convicted them, and the prosecutors who realized too late that they helped convict an innocent person."--From publisher's description.
