Product Details


“[Brings] to life the horrors of the criminal system through the eyes of someone readers feel they know: a person who loves and is loved. And the links between [Adams’s] experiences and his choices are clear and stark: His observations of lawyers helped usher him into a career as one, just as his experience of wrongful accusation spurred his interest in exonerating the innocent. . . . The intimacy of Adams’s writing illustrates the inherent violence of our carceral system in a way that would be impossible without his firsthand experience—and without his willingness to share it.”The Washington Post

“Adams’ story is about as stunning as they come.”Newsweek

“In this engaging memoir, Mr. Adams shares his experience and his clients’ stories, painting a stark portrait of deeply flawed legal systems.”—The Innocence Project, “8 Must Read Books by Wrongly Convicted Writers”

“In a moving and beautifully crafted memoir, without hyperbole or rants, Jarrett Adams compellingly demonstrates the institutionalized racism of the American criminal justice system. When you finish, you will be grasped by two emotions: unbounded admiration for the author and a need to scream ‘We must do something!’”—Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent

Redeeming Justice is a beautifully written vessel of hope and redemption— each page a daring act of justified defiance in the face of a brutish penal system.”—Shaka Senghor, New York Times bestselling author of Writing My Wrongs

“Adams’s story is often hard to believe. The injustice that locked him away is maddening. The cruelty of his incarceration should be actionable. His quest for the truth is inspiring. His determination to not only survive but succeed is nothing less than heroic.”—John Grisham

“Adams vividly describes that as well as ten years he spent in prison, part of it in isolation at a ‘supermax.’ His powerful account of how being Black and poor resulted in this grave injustice shows how far the legal system is from equal justice for all.”—Stephen B. Bright, visiting lecturer in law, Yale Law School

“There is rarely a minute when readers will not want to know what comes next . . . A consuming tale of a broken legal system, its trail of ruin, and the fortitude needed to overcome its scarring.”—Kirkus

“[Adams’s] story of education, the lifesaving work of innocence projects, and exoneration, combined with his drive and skill, becomes a powerful tool in his ongoing fight to be a positive force within a racist and broken system.”Booklist
