Overview

In 1966 in Pulaski, Tennessee, Bocephus Haynes watched in horror as his father was brutally murdered by ten local members of the Ku Klux Klan. As an African American lawyer practicing in the birthplace of the Klan years later, Bo has spent his life pursuing justice in his father s name. But when Andy Walton, the man believed to have led the lynch mob forty-five years earlier, ends up murdered in the same spot as Bo s father, Bo becomes the prime suspect.

Retired law professor Tom McMurtrie, Bo s former teacher and friend, is a year removed from returning to the courtroom. Now McMurtrie and his headstrong partner, Rick Drake, must defend Bo on charges of capital murder while hunting for Andy Walton s true killer. In a courtroom clash that will put their reputations and lives at stake, can McMurtrie and Drake release Bo from a lifetime of despair? Or will justice remain hidden somewhere between black and white?"

Secrets and lies have always been part of everyday life in Pulaski, Tenn., a town now trying hard to live down its notoriety as the birthplace of the Ku Klux Klan. The action of Bailey's solid second McMurtrie and Drake legal thriller (after 2014's The Professor) begins in 1966, when five-year-old Bocephus Haynes sees his father lynched by a KKK mob. At 18, Bo leaves Pulaski, bound for university and eventually law school. He later returns to town with one goal: to make Andy Walton, former grand master of the local KKK, pay for his crimes. In 2011, Walton is found set ablaze and hanging from the tree on which Bo's father was hanged, and it doesn't take the local authorities long to arrest Bo. Devastating evidence keeps stacking up against him; only his lawyers, retired law professor Tom McMurtrie and Tom's law partner Rick Drake, believe that their client is being framed. The plot provides enough twists and surprises to keep readers turning the pages. Agent: Liza Fleissig, Liza Royce Agency. (Mar.)
