PARTY TO A CRIME is the first-person account of Roland Dole, a burned-out former teacher who serves as jury foreman in a crack-fueled carjacking trial. The case doesn’t end with the jury’s expedient verdict, however. Thanks to a delinquent son, a half-trained attack dog, and his own faulty memory, Dole finds himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with one of the parties in the case.
Written with realism and dry (sometimes grim) humor, PARTY TO A CRIME tells the story of one man’s “ordeal by trial” and ultimate redemption against the backdrop of a dysfunctional justice system—where guilt and innocence are cheap commodities, traded in backroom deals.
