Overview

The last meals of death row convicts fascinate us because they offer an insight into a disturbed mind shortly before its owner�s death. The last meal is a way for the system to offer a last minute nod to humanity; that although these murderers, rapists, and villains listed below may have performed inhuman acts, they are still indeed human.

The irony of feeding a criminal before killing them by electrocution or lethal injection is not missed on many of the inmates, as we shall see from some of their choices. Controversial and fascinating, the last meals of the condemned will continue to make headlines as long as the death penalty exists.

This book contains both a brief history of the chefs who make the meals and the stories behind the last meals of over two dozen famous death row inmates (recipes are also included, of course).
