Fredericksburg, TX, USA – WEBWIRE

Dr. Draper, in addition to her academic training and study, with years of actual experience working on over a hundred capital murder cases and testifying in most of these, has the instincts of a master detective who not only examines the evidence but also looks for the circumstances that are not obvious, those buried and hidden beneath family turmoil.

“The Witness: Unfolding the Anatomy of a Killer” (Morgan James Publishing; 2017) brings a new dimension to the genre of true crime literature and drama.  CSI has long since rolled up their tape; but, the investigation isn’t over.  Detectives cool their heels from pounding the pavement; however, the interviews have just started.   The suspects, charged and booked, are left to contemplate their future; yet, the key to their future lies in their past.  While the crime is solved, one question remains: What is justice?  The most fascinating and interesting thread to be untangled from the horrid mess of a human starts with the jury’s verdict—Guilty.

 In the second stage, or penalty phase of the trial, the jury is now charged with the task of deciding a just and adequate sentence.  They are instructed to put aside their own experiences along with their education, to put on the defendant’s shoes and arrive at an impartial decision based on the “monster in human form.”  The newly convicted murderer’s motives, in this penalty phase, are balanced against humanity; one side argues that the weight of the crime warrants death by lethal injection while the other side contends that the scale tips towards life in prison without parole.

The murderer is prosecuted; such an atrocious act warrants death, the DA argues.  They push and press the circumstances, mounting the evidence to a landslide verdict.  In the midst of the overwhelming accusations and suppositions, one obstacle keeps the rising tide at bay. That one, a witness, defends the undefendable.  The witness for the criminal. The witness of the psychological, physical and emotional development of the killer.  The witness for the human charged with taking the life of another. This is the account of “The Witness.”

Draper’s newest book offers insight into this dark side of our society.  She guides the reader, helping to uncover the deeper roots of violence.  Draper’s real-life experiences creatively woven with literary devices provoke thoughts about the violence and crime plaguing our nation and the world. What is creating these people … these … criminals … these … monsters? Dr. Wanda Draper will be present along with her book at 2019 Miami International Book Fair on November 22-24, 2019. This most anticipated affair happens at the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus in Downtown Miami. Join the discussion.
