Capital punishment - the ultimate moral question, one that divides civilized and reasonable society, probably more then any other. But is this question really insoluble? Is it possible that we have lost the ability to recognize our own (most explicit) common ideals of conduct? In this book the topic, usually exclusive to the legal or political arena, is treated fictionally with startling results. Written in the wake of a South African court decision, which abolished capital punishment is artificial and obscures the true nature of our supreme human values. Witness the trials and tribulations of a man who comes face to face with these issues as a prosecutor, petitioner for a condemned killer and also, as a victim of violent crime.
