Killing Time: One Man s Race to Stop an Execution
by David R. Dow
How does it feel to defend a serial killer? To tell a young man that he will be executed in twenty minutes' time? To explain to your five-year-old son that you're late because you couldn't help someone? To realise that a death row convict whose life you hold in your hands is actually innocent? David Dow is a leading death row attorney in Texas, a state where 99% of execution appeals are rejected.He defends convicted murderers for the simple reason that he feels putting them to death is wrong.
