Beverly Hills, CA (PressExposure) August 20, 2012 -- Senior deputy district attorney, Burke E. Strunsky just released his procedural true-crime book, The Humanity of Justice: Lighting Even The Darkest Path Toward Justice, which uncovers the headlines of the veteran prosecutor's most horrifying murder, and child abuse cases in the nation.
Currently a senior deputy district attorney in southern California, Burke E. Strunsky takes readers on a chilling and graphic journey into some of the most brutal criminal cases including: *a former police detective who drowns his wife of thirty years in their backyard spa; a twisted father who sexually molests his daughter's own friends at her slumber parties; a young man who sadistically tortures and kills a helpless three-year-old boy, yet dodges the death penalty; and a highly respected church leader who brutally murders his wife for insurance money while their baby sleeps peacefully in another room.
"When you work as a prosecutor, you work among ghosts. They inhabit the hallways and chambers of every courthouse and whisper constant reminders of the sins of your predecessors long since retired, It's a legacy of dishonor, " says Strunsky from his book, The Humanity of Justice. "The corruptive agenda and actions of a few can tragically pollute well-founded, ethical prosecutions, and meanwhile, wound the very souls whom our criminal laws were designed to protect."
Strunsky provides a significant social and intimate moral commentary on the world of criminal justice, addressing the current hot button topics of gun control, death penalty, and child molestation. Drawn from interrogations, in-depth interviews, trial cases, research, and his own personal experiences, the prosecutor addresses the condition of the American criminal justice system; and gives a heart-wrenching memorable voice to the victims unable to speak.
The Humanity of Justice: Lighting Even the Darkest Path Toward Justice is available in paperback and eBook on Amazon.com, and the website http://www.TheHumanityofJustice.com. 100% of the proceeds from The Humanity Of Justice is donated to The Humanity of Justice Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Strunsky and his wife Geraldine, to help prevent child abuse and neglect nationwide.
