Kerry Max Cook


Kerry was twenty-two years of age when he was sentenced to death. This is a gripping, terrifying memoir of his experience. After two decades, DNA from the crime scene was tested and would prove Kerry’s innocence–but prosecutors withheld the results until after he agreed to plead “no contest” (instead of remaining in prison for a new trial). The “no contest” plea meant he was released immediately–after spending 22 years on death row.

The memoir was published by Harper Collins and is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and other stores.
