More About The Edge of Innocence by David P. Miraldi
 
 
 
Overview

The Edge of Innocence is a work of historical fiction based on the 2964 murder trial of Casper Bennett, a man accused of drowning his wife in a bathtub of scalding water in Lorain, Ohio. Bennett's sensational trial pitted an aggressive, mercurial county prosecutor against the author's father, a civil trial attorney who had never defended anyone for murder. The book not only recreates the tension and excitement of this courtroom battle, but also highlights the uncertain edge that often divides guilt from innocence.

The author was ten years old when he answered the phone late at night when Bennett called his father from jail, seeking his legal representaion. Forty years later and long after his father's death, the author found the Bennett file buried in the bottom of his mother's closet. From the moment he began reading the papers, the long-forgotten drama cast a spell on him. As he uncovered more and more of the facts, the story he had known as a child disappeared to be replaced by a far different story.
