Product description

Review

"Perfectly constructed and exquisitely written. . . . This is a serial killer novel that's more Dostoyevsky than Lars Keplar --rich, anguished, brilliant."--Washington Post

Deeply feeling, super raw . . . It's really creative. I never really had read anything like it.--
Jenna Bush Hager, Read With Jenna

Poetic and mesmerizing . . .
Notes on an Execution is a career-defining novel--powerful, important, intensely human, and filled with a unique examination of tragedy, one where the reader is left with a curious emotion: hope.--USA Today

This novel is defiantly populated with living women . .
. Kukafka evokes the disarming fog of grief, its wild illogic, its transformative power. . . . Notes on an Execution is nuanced, ambitious and compelling. . . . The seduction of the serial killer narrative is difficult to shake, for reader and author alike. We keep watching, and we keep turning the pages. In our fascination, we're all implicated.--New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)

Danya Kukafka's
Notes on an Execution is an intense thriller that reads like a mash-up of Law & Order and a college psych class. The fictional story of Ansel Packer, a serial killer on death row, is given a brilliant twist by focusing on the women he affected, ultimately asking why we're drawn to crime stories about violent men. Cleverly constructed and smart, this is the kind of book you finish with a big exhale.--Real Simple

There's no question whodunit here: The killer is already in prison when the book begins. The story
Notes aims to tell is how he got there. . . . But [Kukafka] also takes care to give Packer's victims what they never got in life: a voice.--Entertainment Weekly, 8 Books to Keep You Page-Turning All Season Long

"At once blistering with righteous anger and radical empathy,
Notes on an Execution is destined to become a contemporary classic."--Esquire, The Most Anticipated Books of Winter 2022

Provocative, intelligent, thrilling, moving.--
Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

Spellbinding and beautifully written. Danya Kukafka's
Notes on an Execution is an irresistible, unbearably tense thriller; a poignant, deeply compassionate tale of resilience; and a vital intervention in the way we talk about violent crime, its endless reverberations and foremost its survivors.--Megan Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of The Turnout

A searing portrait of the complicated women caught in the orbit of a serial killer.
Notes on an Execution examines a culture that romanticizes men who kill while also exploring the lives of the overlooked women altered by this violence. Compassionate and thought-provoking.--Brit Bennett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Half --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
