Other Editions of This Title:
Carter, bereft, shunned almost all human contact until he received a letter from Lesra Martin, a teenager raised in a Brooklyn ghetto. Against his bitter instincts, Carter agreed to meet with Martin, thus taking the first step on a tortuous path back to the world. Martin introduced him to an enigmatic group of Canadians who helped wage a successful battle to free him. As Carter orchestrated this effort from his cell, he also embarked on a singular intellectual journey, which led ultimately to a freedom more profound than any that could be granted by a legal authority.

“A compelling, well-researched, and balanced antidote to the Hollywood caricature of Mr. Carter’s odyssey.”
The Wall Street Journal
“A sturdy, detail-exhausting page-turner that recalls A CIVIL ACTION.”
