Praise for Suspicion Nation:
A smart, fresh, powerful telling of the trial that riveted our country. Suspicion Nation is a stunning eye-opener about the Zimmerman case -- a 'must-read' for every intelligent American.” Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author
"With the mind of a lawyer and the eye of a journalist, Bloom achieves a remarkable double success: meticulously examining the evidence in this case while also placing the whole Zimmerman saga in a broad historical and cultural context." Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author of The Nine and The Oath
Lisa Bloom brings her expert legal eye to the lethal cocktail of racial inequality, ludicrously outdated gun laws, and a culture of violence that led to the senseless killing of an unarmed seventeen-year-old boy. Read this book, get angry, and demand change.” Piers Morgan, host of CNN's Piers Morgan Live.
"Riveting and brilliantly done. Suspicion Nation reads like a great courtroom drama and will ignite major re-examination of this iconic case." Joy-Ann Reid, MSNBC Anchor
Suspicion Nation gets to the heart of all matters, both legal and racial. Lisa Bloom has given us a riveting analysis of one of the most profoundly disturbing cases of our time. Don't miss this book.” Marcia Clark, New York Times bestselling author and lead prosecutor, California v. OJ Simpson
This book is a crusading call for change and a penetrating inventory of our racially divided country. It is a tribute to Bloom's candor that Suspicion Nation will make readers squirm. Her message has the potential to inspire a national dialogue, if we have the courage to read it.” Jami Floyd, Legal Contributor, Al Jazeera America
We know that somewhere the Trayvon Martin case went awry, but in Suspicion Nation Lisa Bloom shows us how wrong and reveals a lot we don't know about the case. Like a great civil rights lawyer Lisa has fought the good fight and exposed injustice." Toure, author of Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness
