An Innocent Man's 25-Year Journey from Prison to Peace: A Memoir
Drawing on his recollections, court transcripts, and more than 1,000 pages of personal journals he wrote in prison, Michael recounts the hidden police reports about an unidentified van parked near his house that were never pursued; the bandana with the killer's DNA on it, that was never introduced in court; the call from a neighbouring county reporting the attempted use of his wife's credit card, which was never followed up on; and ultimately, how he battled his way through the darkness to become a free man once again.
"Even for readers who may feel practically jaded about stories of injustice in Texas-even those who followed this case closely in the press-could do themselves a favour by picking up Michael Morton's new memoir...It is extremely well-written [and] insightful" (The Austin Chronicle). Getting Lifeis an extraordinary story of unfathomable tragedy, grave injustice, and the strength and courage it takes to find forgiveness.
