Author Laura Caldwell
Stories of the wrongfully convicted are brought to life in collaboration with best-selling mystery and thriller writers in this harrowing anthology, edited by Laura Caldwell and Leslie S. Klinger. Long thought to be statistical anomalies in an otherwise sound justice system, wrongful convictions happen with frightening regularity through advances in technology and dogged investigation. Nonetheless, very few people understand just how they happen, and more importantly, the consequences. Now the groundbreaking anthology Anatomy of Innocence tells the incredible true stories of over a dozen innocent men and women who were convicted of serious crimes and cast into the maw of a vast and deeply flawed American criminal justice system before eventually, miraculously being exonerated.

Here, each exoneree is paired with a high-profile mystery and thriller writer (including Lee Child, Sara Paretsky, Laurie King, S.J. Rozan, Brad Parks and others) to produce a unique collaboration. By partnering master storytellers with exonerees and their incredible narratives, and with reflections from Barry Scheck and Scott Turow, two of the most learned lawyers and legal scholars in the world, Anatomy of Innocence presents the tragedy of wrongful convictions like never before. Proceeds from Anatomy of Innocence will benefit Life After Innocence, a program which aids persons wrongfully convicted.
