about this book

An ideal source for the "con" side of any classroom debate on the death penalty, May God Have Mercy is the true story of a death sentence carried out despite new evidence and new witnesses, which the court--ruling on technicalities--refused to hear.

Written by a former Chicago criminal defense attorney, the book details the case of Roger Coleman, a young Virginia miner accused of murdering his sister-in-law, and his lawyer Kitty Behan, who spent two years gathering evidence of Coleman's innocence.
