Fatal Flaw: A True Story of Malice and Murder in a Small Southern Town
by Phillip Finch
Publisher: Booktrope 1992
Fatal Flaw examines an unsolved murder of four that occurred on Christmas Eve, 1975, at a furniture shop in Orange County, Florida. The person convicted of the murders remains on Death Row -- more than 30 years after his conviction -- despite evidence that emerged post-trial that casts doubt on his guilt. The book reveals the prosecution's muddled case, mishandled forensic evidence, and unreliable key witness testimony.

This book comes from the experience of more than forty years spent in court. Aside from the practice of my profession, the topics I have treated are such as have always held my interest and inspired a taste for books that discuss the human machine.
