Hardback. A thought-provoking book on how an array of factors often leads people to commit capital crimes - and how perfunctory treatment by judges and court-appointed attorneys often leads them to Death Row. Drawn from the case files of the appeals attorney, Stephen B. Bright, the author provides illuminating profiles of six convicted murderers, two of whom have been executed. She tells about the crimes, the life circumstances that contributed to the capital offences, the legal cases, and the torment endured by the families of the condemned. Her compelling portraits of these men and women underscore the question of whether the death penalty is more often imposed on the poorest and most vulnerable perpetrators rather than on the worst criminals. Featuring : John Carl Shaw, Donnald Wayne Thomas, Judy Haney, Jimmy Lee Horton, Larry Heath and Michael Cervi. Foreword by Stephen B. Bright. With Glossary. 190pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in f. dw.
