by William J. Buchanan
In a story reminiscent of Dead Man Walking, the brutal murder of professional golf star Marion Miley and her mother enrages the nation. Three men are arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced to die in "old Lightning Rod," "Blue Streak," "Sparky," "The Widow Maker"—the electric chair. But on the night of their scheduled execution, the warden, "hang 'em high" lawman Jesse Buchanan is unsure of one prisoner's guilt. Buchanan grapples with his conscience and the law to find the answer. His actions would change his life forever and alter the course of capital punishment in America.
