The Deprived
Innocent On Death Row

Overview


Thousands of Americans have been convicted and sentenced to death for crimes they never committed. Some have even been executed despite their innocence. The Deprived is a true crime book that tells the stories of Americans who have been sent to death row simply because they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. The book looks into the murder cases, investigations and trials that put them on death row, and describes what life is like when you are exonerated after decades in the death house. The Deprived also focuses on those most likely to be wrongfully convicted in America and the reasons why.
