The Autobiography of an Execution (Playaway Edition)
The Autobiography of an Execution - Playaway Edition Author:David R. Dow Near the beginning of The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow lays his cards on the table. "People think that because I am against the death penalty and don't think people should be executed, that I forgive those people for what they did. Well, it isn't my place to forgive people, and if it were, I probably wouldn'... more »t. I'm a judgmental and not very forgiving guy. Just ask my wife."
It this spellbinding true crime narrative, Dow takes us inside of prisons, inside the complicated minds of judges, inside execution-administration chambers, into the lives of death row inmates (some shown to be innocent, others not) and even into his own home -- where the toll of working on these gnarled and difficult cases is perhaps inevitably paid. He sheds insight onto unexpected phenomena -- how even religious lawyer and justices can evince deep rooted support for putting criminals to death -- and makes palpable the suspense that clings to every word and action when human lives hang in the balance.
