A NATION WAS SHOCKED...
and the reader will be shocked by this frightening account of a brutal killing and the sensational murder trial that followed it. The American Press gave detailed-often hysterical-coverage to the trial; now the Judge himself gives the complete story. It is one that contains a sobering thought for all of us.
"This book cannot merely be shrugged off with 'It would not happen here'. Reading it, you get an uneasy feeling that it could."
