Mark the Sparrow
A suspenseful novel about the last-minute battle to save a man on death row and the uproar surrounding his case as his time runs out . . .
Weldon Whitmen was arrested for committing a series of robberies and bizarre sex crimes while out on parole. Now he’s condemned to die. Claiming innocence, he makes headlines with his appeal—and two people decide to come to his aid.
One is a journalist who thinks the sentence is unjust. The other is a law librarian who has feelings for Whitmen. Amid public outcry and political warfare, they will fight the execution while the nation watches, unsure whether justice will ultimately be done . . .
This edgy, twisting tale comes from an Edgar Award–winning author whose works have been adapted for film and for television programs such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
