The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town by John Grisham

Do you want to read it? Buy it here.

This is one of the few non-fiction book that I have read. I usually like to read fiction, especially the ones with love story and happy ending. It's one of my not-so-secret guilty pleasures.

This is a story about Ron Williamson. He seem to lead a charmed life in the beginning. He's better than good at baseball. He dreamed of being in the big league. For a while, he was too. Then he's accused of murder. Due to a series of fabricated evidence, desperate judges and prosecutor to find their suspect, among many other injustices, he ends up in death row.

He is very fortunate that his sister never gave up on him, as difficult as he is. This is a story of his journey to hell and back. I find it strange that I would read this story. I do not find the main character appealing, but is a gifted storyteller. It's a 5 ♥ story, but I rated it four because Ron is not my idea of a hero.
