This book was clearly written by a member of the prosecution. He has no frame of reference other than what the Attorney General said. His book is not focused on the life of Faith Hathaway, but rather on the his justifications for the murder of her killer.

Great book. Unlike the other story that defends the obvious murder with no remorse. If you have read the other book or watched the movie, read this one for the truth.

Definitely a must read after the one-sided story of Dead Man Walking by Helen Prejean.

I acquired both this book and 'Dead Man Walking' by Helen Prejean from my local library, not realizing they were about the same case.
I read 'Dead Man Walking' first, and I developed a slight sense of sympathy for Robert Willie- not because I think he was an innocent man, but from the human perspective of someone who is waiting for his scheduled death. I read this book as well as 'Dead Man Walking' to improve my understanding of the death penalty, rather than to pass my own judgement on the case

An excellent, if utterly grim read about the story behind the "dead man walking" death penalty case. The author explains exactly why the killer/rapist deserved everything he got. The photo section is not for the squeamish.

I recommend reading all three books about this crime. Then form your own opinion.
