"Anatomy of Injustice" brings us the gripping story of a grievously mishandled murder case that put a twenty-three-year-old man on death row. Edward Lee Elmore, a semiliterate, mentally retarded black man, had been on death row for eleven years when a young attorney named Diana Holt first learned of his case. It was a textbook example of what can go wrong in the American justice system: incompetent court-appointed defense attorneys, a virulent prosecution, and both misplaced and contaminated evidence. The case was the cause of a lifetime for the spirited, hardworking lawyer, who began a long campaign to prove Elmore’s innocence. Moving, enraging, suspenseful, and enlightening, Anatomy of Injustice is a vital contribution to our nation’s increasingly important debate about inequality and the death penalty.
