ABOUT the BOOK

Courtroom Drama of the Century

A vacant, midnight courtroom becomes enlivened by the ethereal and personal testimony of his murder victims.
For the first and last time he will have to face his victims and hear their story as Steve Hodel masterfully gives voice to the murdered.
"George Hill Hodel, how do you plead to the twelve counts, each charging you with murder in the first degree?"
