In telling the story of Pat Dunn, a retired high school principal unjustly prosecuted for the murder of his wife, Humes examines the criminal justice system in Bakersfield, California, "one of the toughest towns on crime in America" and "shows how the individual injustice done to one man is part of a disturbing national trend, in which innocence becomes the unintended casualty of the war on crime, and the immense new powers of prosecutors ... are dangerously unchecked."--Jacket.
