Murdered by Mumia

A Life Sentence of Loss, Pain, and Injustice


Book Description

The hardcover bestseller—now in paperback!


Featured on The Today Show, The O’Reilly Factor, and The Glenn Beck Program


Here, from Maureen Faulkner and Michael Smerconish, is a new, paperback edition of the recent best-selling book that definitively laid out the case against Mumia Abu-Jamal—the onetime Black Panther sentenced to death for shooting Maureen’s husband, Philadelphia police office Danny Faulkner, on a December night in 1981. The subject of a “Free Mumia” international anti–death penalty movement with celebrities leading the charge, Abu-Jamal published books, delivered radio commentaries and commencement addresses, and was named an Honorary Citizen of France. Updated in light of the latest court decisions, Murdered by Mumia weaves a compelling, never-before-told account of one fateful night and the twenty-seven-year-long rewriting of history.
