Synopsis

The author's two cousins were murdered--horribly--in 1991, and her brother, the only survivor of the grim proceedings, was charged for the crime and held until the real murderers were found. As she tells the story, paying tribute to her cousins' exemplary lives, she also ponders the implications of the death sentence, life imprisonment, and America's tendency to glorify young killers.
