Diminished Capacity is a fictional courtroom drama based on a real-life event. It is an honest and detailed examination of a 2010 Minnesota criminal case of first-degree sexual assault - not from victim's standpoint, but from the perpetrator's. In frank terms, the author walks us through this extended and highly controversial story. We witness an emotional trial by jury in the same town the rape occurred, with the prosecuting and defense attorneys thoroughly exposing every event that happened before, during, and after the crime. This carefully crafted and engrossing novel builds dramatic tension as the case unfolds inside and outside of the courtroom, until the moment it is placed in the hands of the jurors to render a verdict. And the reader is along for the thought-provoking ride.
