From the Publisher:

Award-winning investigative reporter and Fulbright Scholar Dave Lindorff has been working as a journalist for 30 years. He ran the Daily News bureau, covering Los Angeles County government, spent several years as a correspondent in Hong Kong and China for Businessweek, and has written for such publications as Rolling Stone, The Nation, In These Times, Mother Jones, Village Voice, Salon, the London Observer and the Australian National Times. He lives in Philadelphia.

From the Author:

I began working on "Killing Time" several years ago, after I was asked to do a book on the Mumia Abu-Jamal case by Common Courage Press. Common Courage was looking for a veteran investigative reporter to go unflinchingly into all aspects of the incident, the trial and the appeals process, and promised to publish whatever I came up with. Though I had no opinion at the time regarding Abu-Jamal's guilt or innocence, I was immediately intrigued by the project. As an opponent of the death penalty, I suspected that this case, involving as it did the shooting of a white police officer by a black radical, would address many of the critical issues involving capital punishment, specifically the role of race, politics and money in who gets convicted and who gets a death sentence. I was not disappointed. The more I researched this story, the clearer it became that whatever happened on Dec. 9, 1981, this was not a case of first-degree murder. It became clear too that Abu-Jamal never had even the semblance of a fair trial or a fair appeal of his conviction. Along the way, I discovered too that the defense has made its own share of mistakes. The biggest seems to be the decision made in 2001 to attempt to claim the defendant is wholly innocent of the shooting and that Officer Daniel Faulkner was actually killed by a hit-man hired by corrupt Philadelphia police. The effort to get this self-confessed hit manís wild story into court after it was already rejected by Abu-Jamal 1999 as being not credible threatens to destroy Abu-Jamal's entire habeas appeal of his conviction and leave him either facing execution or a life in prison without hope of parole. It is my hope that this heavily footnoted work will serve as a resource for all those who really want not just to chant slogans but to be able to figure out for themselves where truth and justice lie in this troubling, decades-old case.
