In 1981, Lukezic, a Phoenix housewife, was arrested and charged with contracting the murder of her husband's partner and his family. She was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. But Lukezic was innocent, convicted mainly on the word of two associates, who were trying to protect themselves. Ultimately, with the aid of attorneys who believed in her, Lukezic was freed after serving three years in jail. This story shows the horror of how easily an innocent person can be arrested and convicted, yet it presents no new insights. Although the sections concerning prison life and the impact of Lukezic's imprisonment on her children are particularly poignant, this is only recommended to libraries with all-inclusive holdings on true crime.
