Depicting American justice at its best and worst, The Prosecutors lifts the lid off today's legal system with details that are more shocking and graphic than any television show or bestselling novel. Allowed unprecedented access to spend a year inside an urban prosecutor's office, Gary Delsohn provides a riveting, behind-the-scenes look at how America's increasingly overburdened judicial system really functions.

Seen through the eyes of the main characters in this true-life drama--John O'Mara, a tough, jaded homicide chief and Jan Scully, an accomplished, former sex crimes prosecutor who is now D.A. The Prosecutors shows us these dedicated public servants at work. The cases they encounter within the year are as shocking as they are indelible.
