About this title


Daniel Ford has 30 days to live. Accused of the horrific murder of his best friend Nathan 12 years before, he has exhausted all appeals and now faces the long walk to the electric chair. All he can do is make peace with his God. Father John Rousseau is the man to whom the last month of Daniel's life has been entrusted. All the two men have left to do is rake over the last ashes of Ford's existence. So he begins to tell his story. Beginning with his first meeting with Nathan, aged 6, on the shores of a lake in 1952, through first loves, Vietnam, the death of Kennedy, and finally their flight from the draft which ended in Nathan's brutal murder.

From the Publisher:

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...
