Surviving Execution is the inside story of Richard Glossip, a death row inmate who has always maintained his innocence, and who did not kill anyone. Convicted largely on the word of the self-confessed killer, who escaped the death penalty in return for implicating Glossip, the state of Oklahoma is still intent on executing him for murder.

 
It is also the story of Ian Woods, a Sky News reporter, who came across the case one quiet afternoon, and who has tirelessly campaigned ever since to bring the injustices Glossip has faced to the world's attention. Three times during 2015, Richard Glossip came within hours of being put to death, postponed each time by last minute stays, and Woods was with him in prison, as a witness to the execution, every time.
 
This is the true story of life on death row, written by a man with unparalleled first-hand knowledge, access and understanding of the case. It is a history of execution, a moral examination of the arguments against it, and a call to arms to end this most barbaric form of American justice. But first and foremost, it is the tale of the growing friendship between the reporter, and the man he believes to be wrongly convicted of murder.
