Twelve Hours by Dave Carley
Twelve Hours is the story of Jimmy Stanton. Convicted of the rape and murder of a young woman, Jimmy is facing his last hours on Death Row. As his story unfolds, so do those of the people whose lives he has impacted, from the sister of the woman he killed, to the Governor who must decide if Jimmy’s execution should be commuted. Twelve Hours goes into the hearts and minds of ordinary people affected by a terrible crime—and the cruel and biased punishment that results.
