About the Book:

Earl McGowen is a likeable philanthropist on Manhattan's upper east side who answers his jury summons and finds himself a juror in a murder trial. The victim, Vernon Hanford, is a horribly deformed man who lived in an institute with other disfigured children society had deemed unacceptable. Earl is exposed to the victim's struggles through the man's diaries. In one of the diaries, he predicts his own murder and even identifies his killer. The riveting testimony of Vernon's best friend as well as the testimony of the defendant himself leaves Earl and the other jurors wondering if this is a case of shoddy police work or an open and shut case.
