A plethora of true crime information and racontage about hundreds of men and women who have passed through Sing Sing's Death Row. The outstanding prison authority of the day tells simply and humanly of his contacts with murderers of all kinds; he analyzes the paradoxes, the types, the stoicism with which most of them die, the ethics of Death Row, the murderers in the prison workshops. Innocent or guilty? These and many other topics are demonstrated in several hundred cases. Lawes' books have dependable sales. This should interest those who read the news stories of murderers avidly, as well as those interested in criminology and prison work.
