" Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No not my life, but of this experience. I'll call it what the lady prosecutor called me MONSTER"
Imagine being convicted of a crime you didn't commit.
Steve Harmon lived an okay life, he went to school, hung out with friends, and did his chores around the house. But that all changed when he was arrested and charged with the robbery, and the murder of the local drugstore clerk, along with two other men.The two other men, Richard "Bobo" Evans ,and James Kings admit to being involved with the robbery but both say that Steve Harmon was the one who pulled the trigger. Steve Harmon denies being in any crime what so ever. In the court room as the case moves on day by day, Steve is filled with more fear, thinking that he is going to be convicted of a crime that he says he didn't commit.That's were Defense Attorney Kathy O'Brien comes in. Trying to convince the judge and the jury that Steve Harmon is innocent, and had no part in the crime at all. But Prosecution Attorney Sandra Petrocelli won't make it easy. I highly recommend you read this book with its shocking and twisted theme and its very serious mood.
