Hardback. In 1961 three Negroes were condemned to death in Maryland for the alleged rape of a young white woman. After almost 6yrs in the Maryland State Penitentiary, including 18 months in the death house, they stood free in a world they had not expected to see again. Their release was the work of a small group of impartial citizens, passionately devoted to justice, who had carried through the Maryland courts to the Supreme Court and back again, finally reversing the seemingly unconquerable forces of prejudice, political advantage, and public inertia. An account of the Giles-Johnson case, a travesty and a triumph of justice by a member of the Giles-Johnson Defence Committeee. 241pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. General wear Nr. Vg. in frayed, chipped and shelfworn G. dw.
