You Be The Jury
You are about to go on a journey – a journey inside a courtroom where an 18-year-old boy has been accused of a double homicide. The mother of the accused will take you back to the day their world turned upside down, to the past and how it shaped the future. She will recount the numerous newspaper articles about the pre-trial publicity – the same newspaper articles that many on the jury admitted to reading and believed their contents. You will be there with her as she reads over the actual trial transcripts trying to find resolve to the many unanswered questions. You will read some of the pre-trial motions, the opening statements, testimonies of expert witnesses and the closing arguments. This journey does not last long, as the trial itself lasts only three days, and the jury took only three hours. Three days and three hours to decide the fate of one young man and to change forever the lives of one family.
This journey is one that will stir every emotion in you. You will close the book and its story will linger. You will experience The Injustice of Justice.

Eve Meyer's first novel is both compelling and thought provoking. Based on the true story of a Boulder, Colorado family thrown into the chaos of the judicial system and the brutal reality of prison life. Two of the key characters in this story are Judge Morris Sandstead and District Attorney Alex Hunt, the same two individuals involved with the JonBenet Ramsey case. Eve's focus on the story is unexpected. She does not try to prove the boy's innocence as she has written the story to prove the blatant disregard for the rules of justice that were present throughout the trial – from beginning to end. Eve has used the actual courtroom transcripts to give the reader a first-hand look at the injustice of justice. You will come away from this book not feeling sorry for the defendant, but outraged at our own judicial system.From the Author:
