Review: Defending Jacob

Defending Jacob
Defending Jacob by William Landay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It has been a while since I read a great courtroom book. "Defending Jacob" is definitely in that category. There are two stories in this book which come into a collision in the end. I was particularly interested to know more about some of the new sciences used to prove the innocence or the guiltiness of an accused. What if one day they can tell if someone will have violent or criminal tendencies just by looking at the genetic making of that person? Where would this lead? That's a scary thought! I rather believe that there goodness in everyone and that you are not what your genetic matter is... well at least I hope so.
