about this book

Geronimo Pratt did not commit the murder for which he served twenty-seven nightmarish years. As a UCLA student, though, he had led the Los Angeles Chapter of the Black Panther Party, and became a target of the FBI. Here is the spellbinding saga of Pratt, his heroic lawyers, Johnnie Cochran and Stuart Hanlon, and the Reverend James McCloskey, who overcame all the odds to bring the truth to light and free Geronimo.

"Much more than [a] compelling story of justice tragically perverted and eventually triumphant."—The Denver Post

"[A] book that makes me grateful to its author, a lasting testimonial, and a document born of the same enduring passion that infuses all of Olsen's work."—David Guterson

"[A] page turner, more engrossing than any courtroom thriller because it is true."—The Oregonian
