In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only 29 years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free. But with an incompetent defense attorney and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in despairing silence.

The journey of an innocent man through death row, Anthony, has left me a better human being. Open my eyes to the grey areas of the human experience. Not everything is black and white. Not everything good or evil. The book created a new extension in my heart and soul to people I never really considered. Anthony transcended his injustice to justice for all and mercy. It has been a week since I finished listening to the book and the story is still with me vivid .

I could not stop listening . I surfed through waves of emotions, shock , sadness, outrage, betrayal, even a taste for revenge to finally rest with mercy and understanding. I recommend this read, I travelled with every single characters some more than others. So will anyone who reads the book. I recommend it.
