9780060549299: A Perversion of Justice: A Southern Tragedy of Murder, Lies and Innocence Betrayed

Between Innocence and Guilt are a Hundred Shades of Evil

The accused killers were children: 12-year-old Alex King and his brother Derek, one year older, the two youngest defendants ever to stand trial for murder in Florida's history. The boys had already confessed to the brutal slaying of Terry King, their own father, who was beaten to death with a baseball bat on a November night on the outskirts of Pensacola. But in the course of the seemingly open-and-shut legal proceedings, a shadowy third player began to emerge. A convicted pedophile named Rick Chavis had befriended young Alex and was now, bizarrely, going to be tried separately for the same crime; a monstrous human predator who had seen two confused youths as perfect, easy prey.

The explosive case that riveted a nation is now the true crime book of the year -- a shocking, spellbinding account of innocence destroyed, blood spilled, and ... A Perversion of Justice.
