Wow. This is an awesome book. Not a happy read, mind you, but superb. I normally do not like legal thrillers (think John Grisham) but Defending Jacob is quite different. This is almost a necessary read for all citizens, showing the extreme toll taken on the often innocent family of the accused. The horrible and unacceptable results for the family of the accused is so plainly shown it hurts.
