'You took him by the neck and strangled him. It is hard to imagine the self-serving ugliness in the mind of someone who could do that!' When artist David Helmway suffers a heart attack, his employee Tom Pritchard robs him of over £500 - then kills him. The police, initially, are satisfied that death was by natural causes - until a diligent mortician thinks otherwise. When questioned, Pritchard frames the only other employee, 21 year old Alan Brading. The investigating detective sergeant believes that Alan is the culprit. At his trial for murder at The Old Bailey, the jury return a guilty verdict. The sentence delivered is death by hanging. That was the way of it in 1957. One man believes in Alan's innocence, but what can a doss-house inmate do where an experienced defence barrister has failed? And so a race against the clock begins, with the clock ticking down to a hanging. 'A heartwarming story of dedicated friendship overcoming impossible odds.'

    If this is ed chappell's first novel, i hope he does more. This is one of those books where one's nerves are fairly well shredded. Although a bit of a slow burn for my taste, once the drama gets into its stride it is a 'can't put the book down' experience. ed chappell's manifest writing ability captures the minutiae of the gut-wrenching scenario perfectly, with the tension of the story maintained to the last. The chapters in which pathos is present, work superbly. Ok, so I fought back tears; is it wrong for a brave man to admit that? And some of the dramatic bits are so tense making one almost wants them to stop ...... i found the book an excellent read.
