As the result of an accidental shooting in a convenience store robbery gone wrong, Billy Wayne Sinclair served 40 years in the Louisiana prison system, six years on death row, before he was released on parole in 2006. Now a senior paralegal, Sinclair and his wife, Jodie, have written what is both a history, an analysis of, and an indictment of the death penalty. The authors--occasionally in grisly detail-- describe the various methods of execution used in the United States, relevant court cases and background, and insights into what always has been and will continue to be an extraordinarily controversial issue.
