Getting Life: An Innocent Man’s 25-Year Journey from Prison to Peace
Simon & Schuster
"As the years passed, I watched the world go on without
me through the keyhole of a door I could not unlock." Such is the life of
Michael Morton, who served 25 years in the horrific Texas penal system for a
murder he didn’t
commit—the brutal beating of his wife, Chris, in 1986. Proven
innocent with the advent of DNA testing, Michael Morton
poignantly recounts half a lifetime spent behind bars and underscores the
glaring errors of our justice system.
