Laura Caldwell is a renaissance woman. She is an author, a lawyer, an educator, a lifesaver, a philanthropist and a motivational speaker. She is a former civil trial attorney who is founding director of Life After Innocence. She is also a published author of 14 novels and one nonfiction book. Her most recent work is ANATOMY OF INNOCENCE, stories of the wrongfully convicted are brought to life in collaboration with best-selling mystery and thriller writers in this harrowing anthology.
Long thought to be statistical anomalies in an otherwise sound justice system, wrongful convictions happen with frightening regularity through advances in technology and dogged investigation. Nonetheless, very few people understand just how they happen, and more importantly, the consequences. Now the groundbreaking anthology Anatomy of Innocence, edited by Laura Caldwell and Leslie S. Klinger, tells the incredible true stories of over a dozen innocent men and women who were convicted of serious crimes and cast into the maw of a vast and deeply flawed American criminal justice system before eventually, miraculously being exonerated. Here, each “exoneree” is paired with a high-profile mystery and thriller writer (including Lee Child, Sara Paretsky, Laurie King, S.J. Rozan, Brad Parks and others) to produce a unique collaboration.
