Had no idea Fuhrman was doing this now - quite the career change. Actually his writing, whilst straightforward prose, isn't bad and he is well placed to offer a persepctive as a former cop.

i read this after reading Innocent Man by Grisham, whose writing is more fluent and it seems that, whatever you think about the death penalty, the process in OK leaves (or left) quite a bit to be desired.

It is interesting to read Fuhrman's take as a pro-death penalty advocate, at least when he set out. Statements like 'if he didin't do that he probably did a lot of other bad stuff' are concerning to say the least.

Will make you think about the issues around capital punishment other than the straightforward eye for an eye arguements - any innocent person executed should fill us all with horror.
