about

"A rousing endorsement of the jury and a superb description of how the system really operates" -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A beautiful woman has been murdered. A young black handyman -- the woman's lover -- has been accused of the crime. In this dramatic account of the trial, Seymour Wishman, a former criminal lawyer, shows how the jury system really works, from the selection of the jurors, through their deliberations, to the final verdict. Using information gleaned from many studies of the behavior of juries, and basing his book on an actual case, Wishman offers an extraordinary portrait of American justice in action. 

"Should find its way into mystery lovers' libraries and law students' satchels alike." -- Psychology Today
