Lethal Injection

A Novel


Jim Nisbet’s cult classic LethalInjection, one of the first Black Lizard Books originals, has been out ofprint in the United States for an unforgivably long time—but now it’s back, andon audio.

It’s 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 BobbyMencken’s last “high.” The young black man on the other end of the needle seemsremarkably indifferent to his fate—but Royce is convinced that the convictedkiller was innocent. When Royce’s marriage crumbles, he takes off for Dallas tosearch for the real killer.

Of Nisbet, Germany’s Die Welt wrote,“Neither Norman Mailer nor Truman Capote has in their writing been able toproduce such an intensity as Nisbet has achieved.” With sharp humor and a poet’sear for language, Nisbet has created a world that is assuredly bleak—but frighteningly real.
