Jack Olsen's Last Man Standing is the gripping story of Geronimo Pratt, war hero and community leader, who was framed by the FBI in one of the greatest travesties of justice in American history.

Geronimo Pratt did not commit the murder for which he served twenty-seven nightmarish years. As a UCLA student, though, he had led the Los Angeles Chapter of the Black Panther Party, and became a target of the FBI. Here is the spellbinding saga of Pratt, his heroic lawyers, Johnnie Cochran and Stuart Hanlon, and the Reverend James McCloskey, who overcame all the odds to bring the truth to light and free Geronimo.

This was my first introduction into a book of this calibre and I have to say I would read it again. It's not often a book is so well researched and written. The dedication to justice displayed by the legal team for Geronimo Pratt saved his life and this story envelops y
ou to the cause. I made a mistake on the stars and my rating should be 5 stars.
