Softcover. Foreword by Jackie Bange. The author vividly remembers the bitterly cold week in January of 1981 when an ex-con named Raymond Lee Stewart went on a killing rampage in the Rockford, Illinois area. In one week, Stewart shot and killed six men. The author was a 10yr old boy at the time, and the story captured his imagination. Never before had that kind of violence come so close to his life. Fifteen years after the crimes were committed, the debate on whether to carry out the death sentence for Stewart received national media attention when the powerful Cardinal of the Chicago Archdiocese, dying of cancer, gave his support to Stewart's bid for clemency. The author, at the time a newsman for WGN Television in Chicago, continued following the case to its inexorable conclusion. 293pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+
