Hard to describe... Reading this felt a bit like meeting someone really interesting at a party and hearing their life story. But in a good way.

Dale’s last review of the year
really liked it
It’s essentially a study in the ethics of the death penalty. It doesn’t try and make it easy by making Sam actually innocent, or even very nice. He’s an objectionable, unpleasant, racist murderer. But still, the book challenges you to decide whether he deserves to be killed.

Not a light read, and not much fun. But a great and thought-provoking book.
