Description
The 1-10 may look like any other highway in America, but this road running from Florida to California is the address for most of our nation's death-row inmates. In his eye-opening book, journalist Ivan Solotaroff takes us down the highway, into the prisons, and inside the death chambers for a dramatic firsthand look at executions. There are four principles in every execution, and these are the book's central characters: the condemned, the district attorney, the warden, and of course, the executioner. Solotaroff has extensively interviewed each of these figures in different penal institutions throughout the South -- and spent time on death row -- the result is an astonishing look at the nuts and bolts of the execution process. As sobering as it is mesmerizing, The Last Face You'll Ever See is investigative journalism at its best, not a moral polemic for or against the death penalty, but a book about how and why the state puts people to death.
