Benjamin Rachlin, "Ghost of the Innocent Man: A True Story of Trial and Redemption"
The Regulator welcomes Benjamin Rachlin, author of Ghost of the Innocent Man: A True Story of Trial and Redemption for a reading and book signing.
During the last two decades, more than two thousand American citizens have been wrongfully convicted. Ghost of the Innocent Man brings us one of the most dramatic of those cases and provides the clearest picture yet of the national scourge of wrongful conviction and of the opportunity for meaningful reform.
“An absorbing true-crime saga . . . [Ghost of An Innocent Man] combines a gripping legal drama with a penetrating exposé of the shoddy investigative and trial standards nationwide . . . His narrative offers a moving evocation of faith under duress.” — ★ Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2017
