The investigation that helped Truscott get a new appeal.

In 1959, a popular schoolboy, just 14 years old, was convicted and sentenced to hang for the rape and murder of his 12-year-old classmate. That summer, Canada lost its innocence and the shocking story of Steven Truscott became imprinted on the nation's memory. First published in 2001, "Until You Are Dead" revealed new witnesses, leads and evidence never presented to the courts. Now this national bestseller is fully revised and updated, and takes readers from that fateful night in 1959 up to the new appeal granted to Truscott in 2006. Julian Sher's award-winning and insightful chronicle details Steven Truscott's dramatic final battle - with the help of his family, investigative journalists and lawyers - to clear his name once and for all.
