Overview

Hours away from execution, Sacco and Vanzetti relive the twists of fate that led to their condemnation
Seven years, two trials, and three appeals after their arrest for robbery and murder in 1920, anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti await execution in their prison cells. Supporters around the world have passionately argued their innocence, particularly when Celestino Madeiros, a young mobster, confesses to the murders along with other members of his gang. But no retrial is ordered; on August 23, 1927, Sacco and Vanzetti are executed. Howard Fast’s heartrending fictional account offers a window into the thoughts and feelings of a presumed-innocent Sacco and Vanzetti, and is a withering indictment of the American justice system. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

    Great Historical Fiction

    Fast represented his well researched knowlege of the Sacco/Vanzetti case with superb, poetic language, actual quotes from the men, and an interesting way of writing it, with all major characters (some which many people would never hear of like Felix Frankfurter). Fast wrote in a way that a classic is written. My only complaint is how scarce it was. We could only find it in one library in a bout 2 counties (and i live in the capitol of my state). I ended up buying it for $30 off of ebay. But, if one is a lover of historical fiction, or the case in general, I suggest it.
