Read by Craig Wasson.
Sometimes the truth can be stranger than fiction ... In his first work of non-fiction, John Grisham delivers his most extraordinary thriller yet: the account of an innocent man sent to death row. "The innocent man" chronicles the life of Ronald Keith Williamson, who left his small town in Oklahoma in 1971 as a second-round draft pick of the Oakland A's and seemed destined for a major league career. He was later convicted in the same town, sent to death row, and came within five days of being executed for a murder he did not commit. After 12 years in prison, Mr. Williamson was freed in 1999. He died at the age of 51 on Dec. 4, 2004. In a true legal thriller Grisham recounts the murder, its aftermath, the trial, the imprisonment, and the exoneration.
