"Anyone who cares about capital punishment should read this compelling, lucid account of the obstacles defense attorneys face and the strategies they adopt."
--John Parry, University of Pittsburgh School of Law
"With its compelling narratives of cases, strategies, and ethical dilemmas, "Litigating in the Shadow of Death" is difficult to put down. . . . This pathbreaking book encapsulates the experience of the most respected capital defenders in America and shows how they save even the worst of the worst from execution. It also shows how sleeping and otherwise incompetent lawyers bring death sentences to their clients. "Litigating in the Shadow of Death" explores the lawyers' tasks at every stage of the criminal process--investigation, client interviewing, conferring with victims' families, plea bargaining, trial, appeal, and post-conviction proceedings."
--Albert W. Alschuler, Julius Kreeger Professor of Law and Criminology, University of Chicago

"Litigating in the Shadow of Death" offers concrete guidelines for better lawyering, protection of the innocent, and understanding the artistry of the best capital attorneys.
