The Green Mile, Stephen King's #1 New York Times bestselling novel, was first published twenty years ago in six original paperback installments. Inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film starring Tom Hanks about an innocent man on death row, The Green Mile is now available for the first time in e-serial form. The Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix is Volume Four.
Time has run out for one of the inmates at Cold Mountain penitentiary. Eduard Delacroix is set to make his way into the lap of Old Sparky. But first he must say good-bye—to the guards, to his fellow inmates, and to a strange creature that forever changed his life. Little does he know of the terrible fate that awaits him, and of a devilish plan of revenge. Though no execution can ever be routine, it can follow procedures put in place to minimize pain and avoid a ghastly end. But those procedures are only as good as the men carrying them out. Unfortunately for Delacroix, one of those men is Percy Wetmore. And he's determined to hear Delacroix's screams of agony echoing along the Green Mile.
