Summary: Sister Helen Prejean, author of ''Dead Man Walking,'' now takes readers to the new moral edge of the debate on capital punishment: What if we're killing the wrong man? Prejean implores readers to reflect on what is perhaps the core moral issue of the death penalty debate: can anyone argue about the injustice of executing the innocent?

Audien ...show morece: General/trade. Sr Helen Prejean has accompanied five men to execution since she began her work in 1982. She believes the last two, Dobie Williams in Louisiana and Joseph O'Dell in Virginia, were innocent, but their juries were blocked from seeing all the evidence and their defence teams were incompetent. 'The readers of this book will be the first "jury" with access to all the evidence the trail juries never saw', she says. The Death of Innocents shows how race, prosecutorial ambition, poverty and publicity determine who dies and who lives. Prejean raises profound constitutional questions about the legality of the death penalty. ...show less

Two cases in point are Dobie Gillis Williams, an indigent black man with an IQ of 65, and Joseph Roger O'Dell. Both were convicted of murder on flimsy evidence (O'Dell's principal accuser was a jailhouse informant who later recanted his testimony). Both were executed in spite of numerous appeals. Sister Helen Prejean watched both of them die. As she recounts these men's cases and takes us through their terrible last moments, Prejean brilliantly dismantles the legal and religious arguments that have been used to justify the death penalty. Riveting, moving and ultimately damning, The Death of Innocents is a book we dare not ignore. ...show less
