Last words...

"Much has been written about this case, not all of it has been the truth. But the time is over and now it is time to move on.

I want to thank my attorneys for all that they have done. The have afforded me the last quarter of a century. I would like to thank my wife, my daughters, family and friends for unwavering support, and all of the letters and well wishes over the years.

Now it is time to pass on. I have fought the good fight, I held the faith. I am not going to say goodbye, I will simply say until we meet again. I love you very, very much. Thank you Warden."

    Poorly written and hastily put together. This book clearly wasn’t proofread before it was published as evident by all the misspellings and grammatical errors. One of the final statements was repeated for two different people. The subject matter is interesting, but the stories were far too short and lacking in detail to make the book worthwhile.

    Waste of Time. Do Not Even Bother With This Book! It was not proof read or edited some of the same quotes are attributed to two different people. Read something better
