"This lively, original book is likely to be a milestone in America's ongoing fascination with the drama of trials and justice." - Fred Graham, former chief anchor Court TV Have you ever had the chance to decide the fate of another person? What would you do? In the real-life cases presented to you in this book, you will be the judge and the jury - making the ultimate decision between right and wrong. Can you convict an abused woman who kills her husband because she is afraid he will beat her again? What about a man who helps his best friend commit suicide to avoid a painful death? Would you allow a feeding tube to be removed from a 92-year-old coma victim so she can die peacefully? Put yourself in the place of the judge or one of the jurors as you read the details of each case. Many of these trials raise questions that go beyond the law to the heart of one's own moral code. At the end of each case, after rendering your own verdict, you can read on to find out what really happened. THE CASE IS NOW IN YOUR HANDS.
