Product Description

Synopsis

In 1977, when Kerry Max Cook was just 21 years old, he was tried, convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a young woman he had met casually at a pool a few days before her death. He spent 22 years in prison, most of that time on death row. "Chasing Justice" is nothing less than a raw condemnation of the American criminal justice system and capital punishment by a person who has experienced the worst effects of its corruption. It is sure to spark debate on this controversial topic and garner enormous media attention. This is also a story of triumph over adversity and a survival tale: almost 1,000 people were executed in the time Cook spent on death row.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, although the subject is shocking and sometimes difficult reading. The author writes so eloquently about his experiences, it really is a gripping story. I would recommend it to readers of true crime and anyone interested in injustice within the legal system and death penalty in the USA.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. Warson on 13 Sept. 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is the best book I have ever read.
It's captivating, interesting and frightening all at the same time.
You must buy this book just to believe the miscarriage of justice that still goes on just to save face.
You will not be disapointed.
