Bestselling writer Thomas Cahill tells the soaking up, heartbreaking story of the not easy lifestyles and tragic demise of Dominique Green—wrongly accused, then finished in Huntsville, Texas—and shines a gentle on our racist and deeply wrong felony justice system.
Green, a rare younger guy from the city ghettos of Houston, was once completely failed through each echelon of society—the Catholic Church, a number of U.S. courts of legislations, or even his personal mother.  yet from the depths of melancholy on dying Row, he transcended his earthly sufferings and accomplished enlightenment and peace, inciting a world circulate opposed to the demise penalty and encouraging his own hero, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, to plead publicly for mercy.
A Saint on loss of life Row is an unforgettable, sobering, and deeply non secular account that illuminates the ethical imperatives too frequently overlooked within the headlong quest for judgment.
