About this title

Synopsis:

Chronicles the experiences of Dr. Branion, who in 1968 was accused and convicted of killing his wife and who, despite the prosecution's knowledge of his innocence, endured more than twenty years of appeals and jail time before he was vindicated. Reprint.

Review:

Chicago, 1968. Martin Luther King had just been assassinated. The city lay in fear of black mobs, student unrest, violence in the streets. As Barbara D'Amato says, "It was not a good time to be going to trial for anything. It was an absolutely terrible time to be black and going on trial for murder." This stirring tale about a clearly innocent man (his alibi was unassailable) shows how a murder investigation can--by narrowing its focus on a "prime suspect"--go completely awry. A good third of the book is about the doctor's adventures as a fugitive in Africa, where he spends time with such notable figures as Eldridge Cleaver and Idi Amin. The Doctor, the Murder, the Mystery won the Anthony and Agatha Awards for Best True Crime.
