Reviews-Last Chance for Justice

Last-Chance-for-Justice for web“… [Detetive] Herren’s interview with one of the bombers, and the subsequent trials of Blanton and Cherry, are truly gripping. Thorne’s story is a stunning reminder of just how tough the fight for freedom—and justice—really is.”
—Publisher’s Weekly

“I can blame T.K. Thorne for a sleepless night reading Last Chance. What a great job telling this little known or understood major historical story!”
—Morris Dees, the co-founder and chief trial counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center

“I don’t have time to read books, but I decided to read the first chapter.  I didn’t put it down until I finished it, and I learned things I didn’t know.”
—Bill Baxley, former Alabama Attorney General and prosecutor in the 1977 bombing case

“In Last Chance for Justice, T.K. Thorne portrays the remarkable skill, determination and tenacity of Alabama law enforcement officials on a mission too long forsaken and largely forgotten. The mission for justice initiated by an unequalled Alabama Attorney General in 1977 ended a quarter century later, with the convictions and life imprisonment of Sunday School terrorists Blanton and Cherry. As a civil rights activist fifty years ago and a reinvigorated one today, I am especially grateful for the commencement and completion of that mission. The author’s deeply researched account is at once marvelously entertaining and enlightening.”
—Chief Justice U.W. Clemon

“I  loved it. It is really masterful. It tells me things I didn’t know about a story we all know a lot about.  … really smart choosing to tell it from the perspective of the investigators in the most recent trials. It made for a very compact, impactful narrative.”
Birmingham News reporter Robin DeMonia

“A page turner. . . a thought-provoking work . . . an important addition to the historical record.”
—Frye Gaillard, author of Cradle of Freedom

“This is a story that desperately needed to be told, to be shared.”
—Alabama Booksmith
