Summary
In Mississippi, a young lawyer races against time to save his grandfather from the gas chamber. The grandfather was tried three times for a Ku Klux Klan bombing which killed two civil rights workers in 1967. He was found innocent twice, but guilty the third time. By the author of A Time To Kill
Summary
Known Klan member Sam Cayhall sits on death row accused of bombing the law offices of a Jewish civil rights activist in 1967. Within weeks, Cayhall will be the last man in Mississippi to die in the gas chamber, now abolished in favor of the more humane lethal injection. When Adam Hall from the large Chicago law firm of Kravitz & Bane takes the case, everyone tells him it is a no-win situation. But Adam has much more to lose than his reputation--Cayhall is his grandfather. Now Adam's in a race with the clock to find a defense that will keep his grandfather from the chamber
