Hardback. Intro' by Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. A veteran female prosecutor shines a penetrating light into the darkest corners of the criminal justice system and presents three of her most difficult and terrifying cases. For more than 25yrs the author tried cases "for the People" in every one of the 35 courtrooms at the Criminal Courts Building in downtown Los Angeles, cases ranging from rape and sodomy to armed robbery and murder. In the three cases that, for various reasons, are closest to the author's heart, she introduces you to the players in these real-life dramas: victims, perpetrators, witnesses, judges, and lawyers. She takes you step-by-step through the details of each case, police investigation, and trial. With Epilogue and Appendix. 237pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
