Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson
Named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Seattle Times, and Kirkus Review.

"..Just Mercy is a remarkable amalgam, at once a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields."  (New York Review of Books)
