Description
 
As a lawyer, Turow successfully represented two different men convicted in death penalty prosecutions. Here, he describes his own experiences with capital punishment, from his days as a young prosecutor to his service on the Illinois Commission that investigated the state’s admin. of the death penalty & influenced Gov. George Ryan’s  commutation of the sentences of 167 death row inmates on his last day in office. Turow provides a brief history of America’s ambivalent relationships with the ultimate punishment; analyzes the potent reasons for & against it, including the role of the victims’ survivors; & tells the powerful stories behind the statistics, as he moves from the governor’s mansion to Illinois’ Super-Max prison & the execution chamber.
