Along the way, Turow 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 stories behind the statistics, as he moves from the governors mansion to Illinois Super-Max prison and the execution chamber.
