With a novelists touch, an award-winning career in investigative reporting, and a moral to preach against capital punishment, Bill Kurtis has turned out an important message and a gripping read.
Death Penalty on Trial is an engrossing look at the American system of capital punishment through the lens of two startling death-penalty cases. It exhibits the classic hallmarks of the best journalism-meticulous investigation, lucid writing, and a nose for great stories-and makes addictive reading.
SCOTT TUROW, author of Presumed Innocent
Zimring is doing more than making a case for or against; hes presenting an impressive array of facts, suggesting that the U.S. would be a better nation if it exorcised those vigilante values.
LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW
