Thompson that emerges is one of a remarkable human being who, despite 14 years in solitary confinement on death row in one of Louisiana's worst prisons (Angola), has emerged solid and whole, with the capacity for compassion and the desire to help others. Highly recommended.
Hollway does a terrific job of presenting the personalities of the characters involved. He also clearly and succinctly explains the way the law works so that everyone can understand. It's a brilliant combination, and Hollway channels a bit of Michael Lewis to pull it off.
I highly recommend this book.
