Review by: Tom Kirby on Jan. 31, 2013 :
If you are looking for graphic descriptions of barbaric executions and torture, you won't find them here. However, the book does a good job of showing the difference in "justice" for the haves and the have-nots. It also gives you a look at one cases were being heard day-to-day, and not just the famous ones. It's a good book for fans of law and order through history.
