This debut novel from Elizabeth Silver is remarkable. I tore through it when I read it, finishing it in 3 days (relatively fast for me… with all that real world stuff.)
The Execution of Noa P. Singleton tells the story of a woman who is set to be executed after being convicted of murder. She hasn’t told her story before. Not even during trial.
So when the victim’s mother comes looking for answers, and offering help, why doesn’t Singleton take her up on it?
This book will make you think. It’s beautifully written and is filled with just the right amount of suspense and emotion to work perfectly.
Silver uses very lyrical writing to illustrate what she calls “the conveyor belt of justice.”
I thought the book would end differently than it did, however, the ending seemed to be fitting.
Another great read to check out when you get a chance!
