Summary
  • "How four exonerees convicted of first-degree murder in Cook County, Ill, represent the many flaws in the criminal justice system, the collateral damage of wrongful incarcerations and their journeys to rebuild the lives and livelihoods they lost. The book follows them as they adjust to life beyond prison walls with courageous breakthroughs, as well as devastating consequences, "--NoveList
  • "Through intimate portraits of four exonerated prisoners, journalist Alison Flowers explores what happens to innocent people after the state flings open the jailhouse door and tosses them back, empty-handed, into the unknown. From the front lines of the wrongful conviction capital of the United States--Cook County, Illinois--investigative journalist Alison Flowers recounts profoundly human stories of reclaiming life, overcoming adversity, and searching for purpose after exoneration. As she tells each exoneree's powerful story, Flowers vividly shows that release from prison, though sometimes joyous and hopeful, is not a Hollywood ending--or an ending at all. Rather, an exoneree's first unshackled steps are the beginning of a new journey full of turmoil and uncertainty. Flowers also sheds new light on the collateral damage of wrongful convictions on families and communities, confronting deeper problems of mass incarceration and the criminal justice system."--Publisher description
