Of the murder cases examined in this book, eight of the twelve people tried were executed but five have since been pardoned and there is cause for doubt about the guilt of the others. This book explores nine legal blunders from the 20th century, including the famous cases of Timothy Evans, wrongly convicted of the Christie murders, and Derek Bentley executed thanks to his ambiguous exclamation, 'let him have it.'
