Description

NOMINATED FOR THE CRIME WRITERS OF CANADA ARTHUR ELLIS AWARD FOR BEST FIRST NOVEL.
Jane Bow covered the trial of Rodger Pearse Brown, and this novel is the fictionalized result of that experience and of the many hours spent with the accused. Dead and Living is a compelling examination of the Canadian justice system, the effects of such a trial on the accused's family, and the timless power of guilt and the human spirit.
