Book summary

"A blistering, well-annotated critique. . . . both passionate and eloquent."-Publishers Weekly starred review

"Death-penalty supporters-and opponents, for that matter-who do not read this unique insider's account of capital punishment as a capricious and nearly broken-down system will lay themselves open to the charge that they don't know what they're talking about."-Kirkus Reviews

"Mello separates himself from others who have written about death row. He is visceral, not cerebral . . . One of the nation's most passionate post-conviction lawyers."-Colman McCarthy, The Nation

"Michael Mello is a poet, a storyteller, a wordsmith, and, thank God, a lawyer. Dead Wrong is an incisive, probing examination of life, death, and the law, at once wickedly funny, heart-wrenchingly human, and surgically precise. This is a book written in blood."-Mike Farrell, actor and president of California Death Penalty Focus
