"Dead Reckoning is one of those books that will remain on my mind for a very, very long time. I applaud Carys Cragg's personal journey, and the graceful and highly articulate writing she employs to share her journey with readers." --Amber Dawn, author of Sub Rosa and How Poetry Saved My Life "With remarkable candour and extraordinary insight Carys Cragg's memoir examines central elements of transformative justice--truth, responsibility and punishment. Healing becomes not reconciliation but compromise, as Cragg's story shifts from the narration of her father's murder as a moment of horror and devastation to a journey of surrender, acceptance, and even forgiveness." --Marina Cantacuzino, Founder, The Forgiveness Project
