The Execution of Noa P. Singleton

The Execution of Noa P. Singleton
Elizabeth L. Silver

The Execution of Noa P. Singleton
is a riveting tale where little happens in the present, but the past is revealed in a way that keeps the reader guessing throughout the novel. It is the story of a young woman, Noa, who is on death row. The tale unravels slowly, driven by characters brimming with human weaknesses, from Caleb, Noa’s father, an ex-con who seems to really want to change and overcome his failures, to Marlene, the mother of the deceased, whose manipulations are the catalyst for disaster, to Noa herself, who refuses to do anything to help herself, and her lawyer, Oliver, who believes he can save Noa’s life.

This is a craftily wrought tale that keeps you wondering until the very last page.
