J. PATRICK O'CONNOR
Author of _The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal_
Editor and publisher of Crime Magazine

At long last ... the truth.

Sentenced to death in 1982 for allegedly killing a police officer named Daniel Faulkner, Mumia Abu-Jamal is the most famous death row inmate in the United States, if not the world. This book is the first to convincingly show how the Philadelphia Police Department and District Attorney’s Office efficiently and methodically framed him. It takes you step-by-step through what actually transpired on the night Faulkner was shot, including positioning each of the witnesses at the scene and revealing the identity of the killer. It also details the entire trial and fully covers the tortuous appeals process. The author, a seasoned crime reporter, writes in the language of hard facts, without hyperbole or exaggeration, unfounded accusation, or finger-pointing, to reveal the truth about one of the most hotly-debated cases of the twentieth century.

J. Patrick O'Connor is the editor and publisher of Crime Magazine. He has worked as a reporter for UPI and as editor of Cincinnati Magazine, associate editor of TV Guide, and editor and publisher of the Kansas City New Times.

Copies of _The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal_ will be available for purchase and signing after the program.

"A complex and compelling read that rivals established TV hits while tackling real life injustice." —Booklist

"O’Connor sets forth a careful, well-constructed argument. Whether it changes minds one way or the other remains to be seen, but, he urges, it is time for a new trial." —Kirkus Reviews

"Factual, balanced, and fair to all sides . . . O'Connor has studied this case and has drawn conclusions based on reflecting upon the facts." —Linn Washington, author, _Black Judges on Justice_
