The Network

Peter Schmitt is a 1955 graduate of Washington High School and Marquette University in 1959.  Schmitt spent three decades in the south where he became interested in the death penalty. His first novel, The Network, is a fictional story of a young black man wrongfully convicted of first degree murder in Alabama and is sentenced to death. A friend of Schmitt’s on Alabama’s death row was the inspiration for the book which documents the appeals through the state and federal appellate court system.
