One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship--and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. u003cpu003e u003ciu003eJust Mercy u003c/iu003eis at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. u003cpu003eu003cbu003eWinner of the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction - Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction - Winner of a Books for a Better Life Award - Finalist for the u003ciu003eLos Angeles Timesu003c/iu003e Book Prize - Finalist for the u003ciu003eKirkus Reviews u003c/iu003ePrize - An American Library Association Notable Booku003c/bu003e u003cpu003e"Every bit as moving as u003ciu003eTo Kill a Mockingbird, u003c/iu003eand in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields."u003cbu003e--David Cole, u003ciu003eThe New York Review of Booksu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003e u003cpu003e "Searing, moving . . .
