'A riveting account of the multiple outrages of the criminal justice system of Alabama. A harrowing masterpiece' Guardian

'Hinton somehow navigates through his rage and despair to a state of forgiveness and grace' Independent

At age 29, Anthony Ray Hinton was wrongfully charged with robbery and murder, and sentenced to death by electrocution for crimes he didn't commit. The only thing he had in common with the perpetrator was the colour of his skin.

Anthony spent the next 28 years of his life on death row, watching fellow inmates march to their deaths, knowing he would follow soon.

Hinton's incredible story reveals the injustices and inherent racism of the American legal system, but it is also testament to the hope and humanity in us all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Hinton] is a remarkable storyteller. You will be swept away in this unbelievable, dramatic true story * Oprah Winfrey *
Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for opposing a racist system in South Africa. Anthony Ray Hinton spent 30 years on death row because a racist system still exists in America. Both emerged from their incarceration with a profound capacity to forgive. They are stunning examples of how the most horrendous cruelty can lead to the most transcendent compassion. -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Anthony Ray Hinton's memoir of his wrongful imprisonment...is a riveting account of the multiple outrages of the criminal justice system of Alabama. But that isn't what makes this a genuine spiritual experience: that comes from the nearly biblical capacity of the author to endure, to forgive, and finally to triumph...his book is a harrowing masterpiece. * Guardian *
A wonderful memoir...A story of forgiveness and struggle - and a story of friendship and imagination * Book of the Day, Observer *
This incredibly moving chronicle...is one staggering revelation after another, but also a lovely portrait of kindness, warmth and how faith is its own reward...On death row he somehow navigates through his rage and despair to a state of forgiveness and grace. * Independent *
