Dennis Boutsikaris reads with an understated tone and careful pacing to capture the authentic experience of an innocent man who waits to be executed on death row. This true narrative depicts the mental torture and decline of Ron Williamson over several decades of incarceration. Williamson was accused and convicted of the rape and murder of 21-year-old Debra Sue Carter, based on junk science, ill-conceived motives, and the testimony of prisoners who had something to gain from false statements. Boutsikaris's portrayal of Williamson's frustration and horror as he screams for hours from his cell's confinement brings chills. This audiobook will shock--and make you doubt the criminal justice system. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
