If you handle criminal cases in Virginia where capital punishment is even a possibility, you should have this book. It is the only publication focusing primarily on Virginia capital litigation. A unique feature of the book is the inclusion of tables organizing all capital cases according to the statutory section applied; the aggravation and mitigation evidence offered; and the applicable aggravator (i.e., vileness or future dangerousness).

Ronald J. Bacigal, Jonathan P. Sheldon, Joseph T. Flood
