Gould (Dept. of Administration of Justice, George Mason Univ.; "Speak No Evil: The Triumph of Hate Speech Regulation" has written a thoughtful and disturbing account of his founding in 2003 of the Innocence Commission for Virginia (ICVA) to investigate wrongful convictions. While DNA testing has brought attention to the issue of justice-system errors, Gould shows many legal issues, regarding mistaken identification, that still remain, including suggestive identification procedures by police, failure to obtain forensic evidence, and prosecutors' failure to provide information to the defense. After describing the history of innocence investigations, Gould calmly dissects 11 cases from the ICVA files to illustrate some tragic errors in the criminal justice system. The book benefits from the use of trial testimony and detailed case descriptions, and the section on federal and state procedures for requesting post-conviction relief, model police identification procedures, and recommendations for prosecutors is especially useful. Though similar, Barry Scheck, Peter Neufeld, and Jim Dwyer's "Actual Innocence: Five Days to Execution, and Other Dispatches from the Wrongly Convicted"takes a more sensational approach and concentrates on the use of DNA evidence. Written for the general public, Gould's book has important lessons for attorneys and policymakers as well. Recommended for all collections.Harry Charles, St. Louis
