Legalized Murder: The Execution of Jack Ganthers
by Teresa Cosco Heslop
In The Execution of Jack Ganthers, Teresa Heslop unravels a complex story of mystery and deception involving a cold case that is over eighteen years old. This detailed and insightful tale depicts the domino effect of an innocent person being convicted of a crime and the dire consequences, not only for the convicted and his/her family, but also for society itself.
Heslop makes a good case for abolishing the death penalty under such circumstances, and charges the reader with a duty to give serious thought to the subject and form an opinion. She also strengthens the case for jurors to uphold the instruction and meaning of reasonable doubt in crimes where the capital punishment statute exists.
