Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo Ore disperate. L’ultimo processo di Harper Lee. Una storia vera su un omicidio e processo che sconvolse l’Alabama negli anni 70 e il famoso autore che ne fece parte.
I am a huge huge fan of Harper Lee and To Kill A Mockingbird is my favourite book. So, when I heard about this book focusing on a serial killer in Alabama, a trial, and Harper Lee’s desire to turn the story into a book, even though she never managed to do it, I knew I had to read it. The story kept me completely glued to the pages. It’s the story of a man accused and never found guilty of many murders. It’s the story of the lawyer who kept defending him. It’s the story of the man who, in the end, killed him. And it’s the story of an author who wrote a beautiful novel read by millions of people and never managed to write another story. Well-researched and with real-life characters and interesting historical facts, this is a gripping and twisty story which I had a hard time putting down.
