Short Synopsis
Intense, startling, and utterly compelling, Stolen Years will take listeners into the lives of the jailed innocent.

Full Synopsis
There is a grisly murder in your neighborhood. You stand outside with your neighbors and watch, or maybe you peek out your curtains. Hours pass, then days, maybe years. Then one day there is a knock at your door and the police take you in for questioning. Do you remember what happened? Do you have an alibi? Can you take countless hours of interrogation without breaking?

This can happen to you. And it happens to more people than you think.

Stories from The Fixer to The Shawshank Redemption have for decades catered to audiences' grim fascination with wrongful imprisonment—one's worst nightmare come to life. In Stolen Years, the stories are true. The ten former inmates profiled here fended off the blackest despair so they could keep fighting for freedom. Once out, they faced a new struggle: getting back to living after losing so many years behind bars.

Intense, startling, and utterly compelling, Stolen Years will take listeners into the lives of the jailed innocent.

"In this gripping book, Stolen Years, Reuven Fenton shows us the devastating consequences that arise when one is convicted for a crime he or she did not commit. These stories have happy endings. Sadly, most do not." ---Dr. Rubin "Hurricane" Carter

"Narrators Will Damron, J.D. Jackson, and Bahni Turpin take on the charged subject matter with nuance and compassion." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"Reuven Fenton has written a vitally important book. We need these stories about this broken system, the death penalty, to change hearts." ---Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking

"Fenton astutely conveys the degree of carelessness and underhandedness with which these cases were handled, which poignantly rouses anger and frustration in the reader." ---Publishers Weekly

"[T]he author proves his point that the justice system is far from perfect and gives his readers reasons to think twice about criminal convictions." ---Library Journal

"Reuven Fenton has given a captivating, no-holds-barred look at wrongful convictions."
---Laura Caldwell, Director of Life After Innocence and author of Long Way Home
