‘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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
What if the state convicted you to die for murders you couldn’t have committed, disregarding evidence that proves your innocence? With earnest, emotional detail, Anthony Ray Hinton tells the story of his three-decade odyssey from a wrongful conviction to a hard-won exoneration. While his powerful imagination and lighthearted disposition—along with the dedication of friends, family, and a dogged attorney—saw Hinton through, his memoir never sugarcoats the realities of death row. Despite the heaviness of his ordeal, Hinton's conversational, down-to-earth writing style kept us engaged every step of the way.
