Summary
Surviving Execution is the story of Richard Glossip, a death row inmate who has always maintained his innocence. Convicted largely on the word of a self-confessed killer, who escaped the death penalty in return for implicating Glossip, the state of Oklahoma is still intent on executing him for murder. It is also the story of Ian Woods, a Sky News reporter, who came across the case one afternoon and who has tirelessly campaigned to bring the injustices Glossip has faced to the world's attention. Written with first-hand knowledge, access and understanding of the case, this book is a history of execution, an examination of the arguments against it and a call to end this most barbaric forms of American justice. But first and foremost, it is the tale of the growing friendship between the reporter, and the man he believes to be wrongly convicted of murder
