A terse and admirably told story of a heroism that finds its last expression in death. It has the further merit of showing keenly the condition to which many a good Southern family was brought by the war.
Lyle Howard has come a long way since he published his very first story in 1982. Howard mostly writes page-turners that keep the readers wanting more and Terminal Justice is no exception. As our Author of the Day, Howard reveals the secreat A-B-A-B code behind his page turners, talks about conspiracies and how Terminal Justice was inspired by a talk with a fellow passenger on a plane.
