The Edge of Innocence: The Trial of Casper Bennett (Unabridged)

by David P. Miraldi

Open iTunes to Buy


The Edge of Innocence is a work of historical fiction based on the 1964 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 before defended anyone for murder. The book not only re-creates the tension and excitement of this courtroom battle but also highlights the uncertain edge that often divides guilt from innocence.  The author was 10 years old when he answered the phone late at night, when Bennett called his father from jail, seeking his legal representation. Forty years later, and long after his father's death, the author found the Bennett file 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, replaced by one far different.
