The subtitle of legal pundit Lisa Bloom's new book, "Suspicion Nation," is a bit misleading when it claims to be "the inside story" of the killing of Trayvon Martin and the trial that followed. There are few, if any, behind-the-scenes revelations in "Suspicion Nation. " Anyone who followed the 2013 trial of shooter George Zimmerman will be familiar with Bloom's account of the case. And in a divided United States, millions followed the story obsessively, joining competing pro-Trayvon and pro-Zimmerman Greek choruses on social media.
