As a pioneer of the modern legal novel and a criminal lawyer, Scott Turow has been involved with the death penalty for more than a decade, including successfully representing two different men convicted in death-penalty prosecutions. In this vivid account of how his views on the death penalty have evolved, Turow describes his own experiences with capital punishment from his days as an impassioned young prosecutor to his recent service on the Illinois commission which investigated the administration of the death penalty and influenced Governor George Ryans unprecedented commutation of the sentences of 164 death row inmates on his last day in office. Along the way, he provides a brief history of Americas ambivalent relationship with the ultimate punishment, analyzes the potent reasons for and against it, including the role of the victims survivors, and tells the powerful stories behind the statistics, as he moves from the Governors Mansion to Illinois state-of-the art super-max prison and the execution chamber. About The Author: Scott Turow is the world-famous author of several bestselling novels about the law, from Presumed Innocent to Reversible Errors , as well as the wartime thriller Ordinary Heroes. He has also written an examination of the death penalty, Ultimate Punishment. He lives with his family outside Chicago, where he is a partner in the international law firm of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal.
