Resumen:

Run, Brother, Run : A searing family memoir, hailed as "remarkable" (The New York Times), "compelling" (People), and "engrossing" (Kirkus Reviews), of a trial lawyer's tempestuous boyhood in Texas that led to the vicious murder of his brother by the father of actor Woody Harrelson.

In 1968, David Berg's brother, Alan, was murdered by Charles Harrelson, a notorious hit man and father of Woody Harrelson. Alan was only thirty-one when he disappeared (David was twenty-six) and for more than six months his family did not know what had happened to him - until his remains were found in a ditch in Texas. There was an eyewitness to the murder: Charles Harrelson's girlfriend, who agreed to testify. For his defense, Harrelson hired Percy Foreman, then the most famous criminal lawyer in America. Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, Harrelson was acquitted.

After burying his brother all those years ago, David Berg rarely talked about him. Yet in 2008 he began to remember and research Alan's life and death. The result is Run, Brother, Run: part memoir - about growing up Jewish in 1950s Texas and Arkansas - and part legal story, informed by Berg's experience as a seasoned lawyer. Writing with cold-eyed grief and a wild, lacerating humor, Berg tells us first about the striving Jewish family that created Alan Berg and set him on a course for self-destruction, and then about the miscarriage of justice when Berg's murderer was acquitted.
