Beyond a Reasonable Doubt is a novel written by C. W. Grafton. It was first published in 1950.
After young lawyer Jess London murders his loathsome brother-in-law in a small American town, he makes a full confession. But no one believes him. He retracts his statement. As the story unfolds, he's soon under arrest and must now prove his innocence. "A very ingenious tale of murder," said Jacques Barzun. The Saturday Review applauded the novel for its "originality."
