Summary
"On August 13, 1986 ... Michael Morton went to work at his usual time. By the end of the day, his wife Christine had been savagely bludgeoned to death in the couple's bed--and the Williamson County Sheriff's office in Texas wasted no time in pinning her murder on [him] ... Michael was swiftly sentenced to life in prison for a crime he had not committed ... It would take twenty-five years--and thousands of hours of effort on the part of Michael's lawyers, including the team at the New York-based Innocence Project--before DNA evidence was brought to light that would ultimately set Michael free"--
Summary
Draws on personal recollections, court transcripts and extensive journal entries to recount the author's wrongful conviction and imprisonment for the murder of his wife, sharing for the first time his views on the conviction of the actual killer and the legal malpractice charges against his prosecutor
