Accused and convicted of the murder of his closest friend, Nathan Verney, Daniel Ford has exhausted all appeals and, at last, faces the electric chair. It’s 1982, and Daniel is thirty–six years old. One person will walk that final month with him. Father John Rousseau has been entrusted by the U.S. government with Ford’s soul, and together they will rake over the ashes of his past. But this is no simple story. It is one that not only encompasses the loves, betrayals, and friendships of one man, but also the tumultuous events of a whole society on the verge of war with itself. It was the America that saw the Vietnam War and Watergate, the deaths of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King. It also saw the brutal murder of Nathan Verney and the guilt of the one man who loved him...About the Author:
