Guilty of Nothing
Vantage Press. 2008
When Bill Eck is accused of a crime he didn't commit, the evidence is compelling but not complete. With enough loopholes in the case to run a racehorse through, it seems as though any logical juror or judge would need more evidence to convict anyone in this position. A serial killer who strikes at the site of the racehorse track has every citizen on edge, and Bill is no exception. He is, however, exceptional in one way-his unerring ability to bet on winning horses. Unfortunately, this garners him more than a few enemies and, when an anonymous call is made to the police station, they find him unconscious at the racetrack, with evidence of the murders clutched in his hand. When he wakes up, unable to recollect the series of events that landed him in jail, the police and townsfolk think it's an open-and-shut case. With a tough judge, will justice be done? Kevin King's Guilty of Nothing provides not only a page-turning, gripping story, but also a scathing indictment of our so-called "justice system"
