On picking this up you might feel it a little bleak for a holiday but it is a powerful and deeply moving tale which I highly recommend. It is a compelling drama about silence, lies and prejudice concerning a murder in the 80s, with the accused now facing execution in 2004. The victim’s mother, strangely obsessed with the murderer, uncovers some ugly truths. Set in Illinois, it jumps around in time but this adds to the suspense as grief, hate and anger rise. Beautifully written.
