From the blurb on the flap:

"....In 1982, in Grundy, Virginia, a young miner named ROger Coleman was sentenced to death for the murder of his sister-in-law. Ten years later, Coleman's case had become an international cause celebre..........the courts refused to consider new evidence because of a lawyer's mistake: years earlier, an appointed lawyer had filed a document one day late............May God Have Mercy explores the legal and moral complexities of this dramatic casewith devastating impact. It is a book about guilt and innocence, about the search for truth, and about the courageous efforts of a young lawyer...........an emotional and unforgettable roller-coaster ride-a fascinating murder mystery that provides a chilling glimpse into the workings of the criminal justice system in the United States."
