Lone Holdout: a Memoir

A rare firsthand account by a lone holdout juror, this memoir looks deep into the American justice system--and one woman's heart. Linda Cox, a Boston bookseller, had never served on a jury. The case before her seemed simple at first. A young Hispanic man, Carlos Montilla, was accused of cocaine trafficking, and a veteran cop testified against him. But things are not always what they seem, and Cox soon began to doubt the officer's testimony. After two days of bitter wrangling, the jury was deadlocked eleven to one. Cox was the one. With magnificent stubbornness, she struggled to win justice for Montilla after he was convicted by a second jury and sent to prison. She fought her battle in a world of colorful characters--from frightening to noble, including Three White Knights. This compelling true story made the front pages of the Boston Globe and the Los Angeles Times.
