The book is a memoir about Stevenson's career as a lawyer and his work for poor clients, largely focusing on his efforts to overturn the wrongful conviction of Walter McMillian for the murder of Ronda Morrison. Stevenson began working on the case in the 1980s, while McMillian was on death row. The case is revisited throughout the book and serves as the primary narrative; the chapters of the book alternate between visiting various aspects of the McMillian case over time (odd chapters) and Stevenson's work on other cases (even chapters). McMillian was sentenced to death for the murder of Ronda Morrison, a young white woman, in Monroeville, Alabama, which is known as the hometown of Harper Lee, who wrote To Kill a Mockingbird. The jury at McMillian's trial, which included only one Black person, returned a sentence of life in prison, which was overturned by the presiding judge, who issued a death sentence in the case. McMillian was acquitted in 1993, after spending six years on death row for the murder.
