about this book

At just twenty-five, Noa P. Singleton was confined to death row, awaiting execution for the murder of her father's pregnant girlfriend. As the months pass and her execution date gets closer, Noa is visited by the mother of her victim, a high-powered attorney, who has other plans for her. Exploring dark psychological aspects of guilt and the human desire for normalcy, The Execution of Noa P. Singleton is a provocative examination of the criminal justice system.

Praise for The Execution of Noa P. Singleton:

"Compelling debut. . . . A clever examination of the nature of destiny and the choices we make, this thought-provoking book is reminiscent of John Grisham's The Confession in its exploration of the death penalty. Silver has successfully written a suspenseful, absorbing tale." —Library Journal (starred review)
