Rose grew up in a family where she felt inferior to her brothers and afraid of her mother, who warned her fiercely about men who hid in bushes and did unspeakable things to children. But Uncle George made her feel safe, loved and wanted. Her whole family trusted him - so when he wanted to take Rose off for special treats, her parents were delighted. And so was Rose - but she got puzzled when he wanted to take photographs of her in the nude. Soon he was warning her that she had been very naughty and he could get her into a lot of trouble, so she must keep quiet. Knowing she was special to him, she knew he wouldn't want her to get hurt - even though he did hurt her sometimes. And besides, Jesus was watching over her - and Uncle George was a big part of church life. So what he was doing must be all right, mustn't it - and if it wasn't, Jesus would stop him, wouldn't he?
This essay, drawn from Legal Ethics: Law Stories, tells a story about Ramos v. City of New York, a wrongful conviction; the misconduct that led to it; and the creative work of a single lawyer who won his client's release - and then successfully sued for the largest settlement New York City had ever paid in this kind of case. Legal Ethics classes mostly focus on rules, hypothetical fact patterns, and cases, perhaps with a smattering of tales from the headlines. Rarely do they get into the details of actual cases seen through the eyes of the participants as the case unfolds.
"The Pink Room" is a sequel to, "How To Ruin a Pearl."

Some are in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, some in the Pacific Northwest, a few are in the Western deserts of Utah and Nevada, one is in England, and many are scattered throughout the Southern US. All are desperate for something beyond the ordinary lives that are given to them, and every one is absolutely unforgettable.
Welcome to Delight, Arkansas, where the roots of family trees grow so deep, old secrets poison the groundwater. When marathoner Sally Brown shows up in Arkansas, her sister Suzanne gives her such a chilly reception that even ten-mile runs can't warm her. Then reporter Bobbie Lou Voight--who's been snooping into Suzanne's past--turns up dead during Delight's chicken cook-off. Could pregnant Suzanne have wielded the lethal weapon? What about the beauty queen cheated out of the Miss Arkansas crown years ago by the deceased? Even local restaurateur R.D. Blackwell is under suspicion, what with those regular cash payments he'd been making to Bobbie Lou. As a fifty-foot tall chicken statue named Shorty keeps an eye on all the citizens of Delight, the mystery surrounding Sally's sheltered childhood unravels at an even pace with her race to uncover the killer.

This charming book was the winner of the prestigious Carnegie Medal and is beautifully illustrated throughout by Edward Ardizzone, whose exquisite pictures immediately bring to mind the magical atmosphere of the stories
