Mistried (a novella) by Paul Alexander

Book: Mistried
Author: Paul Alexander
Narrator (if applicable):n/a

Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: Can a person be tried more than once for the same crime in the United States? Under usual circumstances, no. But in Mississippi, one man was tried six times for the same brutal crime—and his ordeal still hasn’t ended. 
My rating: 5 Stars
My opinion: I thought this was a concisely written for a short novel, but would have preferred to see it written as a full length book.  I also found the jacket to be somewhat misleading as to conviction status of the defendant. He was found guilty by a jury of "peers" vs. double jeopardy, yet had his convictions reversed on technicalities. On that note, the author brought other points to "ponder", but felt they were "skimped" on because of length of book.

Would I recommend? : Yes, it was pretty good for a 37 page novella
Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Stand Alone
