From the cover:  

Ron Williamson was a college baseball player in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma.  When he left to pursue his dreams he seemed destined for glory.  But years of injury, drinking, drugs and women took their toll.  

He returned to Ada a lonely drifter.  In 1982, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress was raped and murdered.  After five years of fruitless investigation the police arrested Williamson for want of any other suspect.  The case against him was built on bogus evidence and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts.  He was found guilty at trial and sent to Death Row. 

This is a true story of the criminal justice system gone terribly wrong.  Of vengeful prosecutors and incompetent defence lawyers.  Of a man's journey to hell.  A journey from which he nearly didn’t return. 


‘John Grisham has built his stunning writing career on producing brilliant, fast moving, utterly believable legal thrillers.  His 19th book however, is so harrowing and gruesome that it just doesn’t seem conceivable.  Yet it’s true – all of it’ - Mirror 

‘A work of art... this is a terrible and beautiful book.  The burning care and respect for his fellow man shown by Grisham permeated and warms every page.’ - Sunday Express 

‘Like Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, The Innocent Man brings a novelist’s eye to re-creating a complex chain of events and human reaction surrounding a crime and its aftermath.’ - Sunday Times
