The Sister is the first book in award-winning author R.J. Ellory’s electrifying ebook-exclusive trilogy, THREE DAYS IN CHICAGOLAND. The testimonies of the sister, the cop and the killer will at last reveal the dreadful truth behind the brutal murder of a young girl in Chicago in 1956.

That final minute should have lasted forever, but it was gone before I knew it.
Four years, five months, fifteen days, and twenty-two hours collapsed into sixty seconds.

Today I will see a man die. Today I will see justice delivered. Four and a half years ago a man – a monster – put his hands around my sister’s fragile neck and squeezed the life out of her. He confessed without hesitation. He gave no explanation, no defense, and he did not ask for mercy. And as I sit here, counting down his final seconds on this Earth, I know my wait is over. I will finally get what I truly desire: to see my sister’s killer executed in front of my eyes.
