What’s the worst thing that could happen? For me, it would be the loss of my family—which made this as intense a read as it could be. Silvano Contin’s wife and 8-year-old son are kidnapped and murdered during a botched robbery. Now, 15 years later, one of the captured kidnappers has cancer and is asking for Silvano’s help in allowing him to die outside prison walls. A word of mercy from the victim’s family will set a killer free. What would you do? Final word: Think long and hard about that question, then read this book. At the least, it will make you wiser. At most, it twill make you more humane.
