Smoke but No Fire

Convicting the Innocent of Crimes That Never Happened

2020 INDIES Winner
Silver, Political and Social Sciences (Adult Nonfiction)

The first book to explore a shocking yet all-too-common type of wrongful conviction—one that locks away innocent people for crimes that never actually happened. Former NYC public defender Jessica S. Henry sheds essential light on a deeply flawed criminal justice system that allows—even encourages—these no-crime wrongful convictions to regularly occur.
