"A true story, very well told - a true Grisham classic" * London

"horrifying, but gripping" * EVENT magazine, The Mail on Sunday *
"Such strong emotions are, for me at least, the sign that a True Crime book has done a complete and comprehensive job of telling the story. I think the book will have wide appeal. Fans of John Grisham's fiction will not be disappointed and should definitely be enticed to make the move to his non-fiction. For those readers interested in the American justice system and the question of Death Row then I believe this book offers a close look into the inner machinations of that system. And for lovers of True Crime - like me, then this book is most certainly up there with some of the better ones I have read." 4 1/2 star review" * TheBookbag.co.uk *
"carefully plotted, absorbing" * Real Crime *
