The small-town police who investigated the case quickly narrowed their focus on her brother-in-law, Roger Coleman. Their suspicions made sense: Wanda had been raped- Roger had once served time for sexual assault. The facts, at least superficially, all pointed to him as the killer. As the story unravels, though, the case seems less cut-and-dried, and the polices decision to focus so much of their energies on Coleman seems more and more a travesty.

Yet, despite growing evidence of his innocence, Coleman was quickly tried, found guilty, and condemned to die. May God Have Mercy documents his long battle with the legal system and the ongoing efforts of his lawyers, as well as the media and numerous private citizens, to prove his innocence.

John C. Tucker has written a chilling condemnation of politics as usual that is bound to challenge the assumptions of anyone who believes that the American justice system is concerned primarily with justice. Colemans story is compelling, disturbing, and overwhelmingly frustrating. Even if you remember the case from its media coverage, youll be shocked and horrified at this story and at the lack of concern, common sense, and basic humanity the American legal system can possess.
