As an Australian it is bewildering to me that the United States shares the death penalty with China and North Korea. If ever there was an argument against it, here it is in Inferno. This is every person’s worst nightmare. It is terrible what happened to this man. The book is well researched and tells a compelling story.

This was a terribly sad and wrenching story. I remember this in the news. The book is not written that well but it does a good job of highlighting why the death penalty should be abolished.

Interesting story however very repetative. Now that I think about it, its not really a story its the authors interpatation of the police and fire departments interviews as well as the surviving family members. Would not recommend. I got this book for free!

This little volume outlines the trial and execution of Todd Willingham. On even the most basic of academic levels, this book is poorly written at best. The author includes personal opinion as fact and cites non-academic sources such as Wikipedia. The author cites personal attempts to demonstrate fire behavior in the most unscientific "studies" (I use that word in the most liberal definition) I have ever seen published. The "about the author" section gives no indication as to the authors qualifications, education or experience.

Author repeats things a lot. I found the book to be somewhat interesting and think maybe Willingham was executed in error. Read it and make your own findings.

There's very little written about the people involved in this horrific fire. The book focuses on the author's attempts to disprove/prove evidence although he clearly does not have the credentials/expertise to do so.

An entertaining new twist on the Big Guy's feelings as Xmas nears him... thoughtful & smart, yet lots of fun!
