Synopsis

Jim Nisbets cult classic Lethal Injection, one of the first Black Lizard Books originals, has been out of print in the United States for an unforgivably long timebut now its back, and on audio. Its about as noir as you can get. In a bleak Texas prison, Franklin Royce, an alcoholic doctor, is given the odious task of administering inmate Bobby Menckens last high. The young black man on the other end of the needle seems remarkably indifferent to his fatebut Royce is convinced that the convicted killer was innocent. When Royces marriage crumbles, he takes off for Dallas to search for the real killer. Of Nisbet, Germanys Die Welt wrote, Neither Norman Mailer nor Truman Capote has in their writing been able to produce such an intensity as Nisbet has achieved. With sharp humor and a poets ear for language, Nisbet has created a world that is assuredly bleakbut frighteningly real.
