    1. Lived in Houston for four and a half years and generally enjoyed getting in touch with the feel of the place again through this book, but I was there as an expat from a country where we don t kill people for crimes I have no doubt that Texas and the US in general is a place where particularly viIe and violent crimes occur, though there was always a strain of politeness in the air that seemed at odds with the poverty and lack of education that causes much of the trouble I agreed with everything t [...]


    2. Probably closer to 3.5 stars This was a fascinating book with some problems Reading about the disgraceful way the various lawyers, judges etc behave is shocking I did not realise the US legal system was so morally bankrupt I found some of the family stuff quite moving it made a nice change from the heart breaking death penalty stories particularly the central case I felt like I got to know the author a little bit.The problems I had were that it seemed to jump around a lot, which at times was a l [...]


    3. Great book about a lawyers journey in USA to fight the American justice system to prove a mans innocence Working with the innocence project David Dow deals with a few cases like this but this is the story of Henry Quaker on death row and believed to be innocent Its interesting to read how the USA system do things differently to here in the UK and how if you have a rubbish lawyer then it doesn t matter if your innocent as they will convict you and stick you on death row, and if you still have the [...]


    4. Not sure about this book The content was interesting but for someone who is exposed to the horrors of life in a daily basis, I wish he would have appreciated his family But, maybe that is the whole point of the book, perhaps when you are exposed to such trauma all the time, maybe you are incapable of love and kindness Not bad for a weekend read, but looking forward to picking up something a bit fluffier for a change of pace.Happy Reading,Heidi xo


    5. I liked this book but I don t really know why I have always been against the death penalty so found myself agreeing with almost everything David Dow has written, but it wasn t just that Maybe it s a relentless approach to his highly controversial job as a death row lawyer Maybe it s because he doesn t always win, but he always keeps trying Some days murderers steal my spirit Most of the time, though, it s judges.


    6. This book is the same story as The Autobiography of an Execution I didn t realize that when I bought it But I recommend you read one of the two It will change your perspective on capital punishment in America.
