From the Publisher:

By all accounts, Jovan Mosley was a good kid. He was working on a way out of his tough Chicago neighborhood and had been accepted at Ohio State University when he was forced to confess to a murder he did not commit. He then spent five years and ten months in jail without a trial. His efforts to exonerate himself got him nowhere until he happened to meet a successful criminal defense lawyer, Catharine O'Daniel. She became convinced of his innocence and took him on as her first pro bono client. Along with Laura Caldwell, she decided to fight to free Jovan. Against enormous odds, they fi­nally won some measure of justice. In this affecting memoir, Caldwell tells the unforgettable story of a breakdown in the criminal justice system and what it took to free an innocent man.

Annotation:
Laura Caldwell was a medical-malpractice attorney when she published her first novel, 2002's BURNING THE MAP. She left litigation to teach law and has since become an award-winning mystery and suspense writer. While researching her sixth novel, 2006's THE ROME AFFAIR, she came across the case of a straight-arrow 19-year-old from the south side of Chicago who claimed police coerced him into a murder confession. Caldwell joined his legal team, and in the nail-biter LONG WAY HOME she documents the fight to free an innocent man from one of the country's most notorious jails.

Praise

"This disturbing story of coerced confession and delayed justice is compassionately told, and Caldwell's account of the trial is riveting." - Amy Rowland 10/24/2010
