Summary
"Richard is a mitigation specialist in Mexico--an investigator for lawyers who defend Mexican nationals accused of captial offenses in the United States. Combining the back roads of starving Mexican shantytowns and nearly abandoned agricultural villages, he digs up the traumatic personal histories of undocumented immigrants. His goal: to provide enouugh mitigating evidence for the prosecution not to seek the dealth penalty. When Richard is hired to look into the tumultuous past of Esperanza, a young woman who has been accused of murdering her baby in Louisiana, the boundaries of Richard's closely circumscribed life explode" --
Summary
Set in the American South and in rural Mexico, One Life is an unflinching, page-turning novel that examines the difference between pragmatism and cynicism, the indelible links between sex, death and love, and the meaning of justice
