Convicted Book Review




  •  











This book is written by Jameel Mcgee & Andrew Collins. It's a true tale of two men that find truth and purpose in faith while serving a prison sentence. It was a good read, very well written and easy for the reader to follow. I didn't have any issue following the "story line" and was able to read it quickly. 

A gripping read based on innocence, wrongful accusals & false information. It truly leaves the reader wanting more. 

About the book:

"Racial tensions had long simmered in Benton Harbor, a small city on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, before the day a white narcotics officer--more focused on arrests than justice—set his sights on an innocent black man. But when officer Andrew Collins framed Jameel McGee for possession of crack cocaine, the surprising result was not a race riot but a transformative journey for both men. 
 
Falsely convicted, McGee spent three years in federal prison. Collins also went to prison a few years later for falsifying police reports. While behind bars, the faith of both men deepened. But the story took its most unexpected turn once they were released--when their lives collided again in a moment brimming with mistrust and anger. The two were on a collision course—not to violence—but forgiveness.  
 
As current as today’s headlines, this explosive true story reveals how these radically conflicted men chose to let go of fear and a thirst for revenge to pursue reconciliation for themselves, their community, and our racially divided nation."
