This work contains details on each person executed by the criminal justice system in three states, from the 1800s through December 2010. Drawing on contemporary newspaper reports, the profiles of each criminal include details of their crimes, trials, sentencing, last words, and execution by hanging, firing squad, electrocution, or lethal injection. The book is organized with the researcher in mind, with case histories presented by state and chronologically. An introduction gives technical and medical information on execution methods. Wilson is retired from law enforcement; he has written other books on crime and capital punishment.
