A riveting journalistic account of the investigation and trial of Hugh Otis Bynum, the mastermind of a car bombing attack on Loy Campell, a prominent attorney in the small town of Scottsboro. Woodfin charges the story with all the Southern pathos of eccentric characters bent on destruction, reminiscent of a good crime story or a creepy Flannery O'Conner novel, and bolsters the effect with accurate research around the trial which featured not only the accused and the victim but also an ambitious Alabama attorney general and his defense counterparts. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Review:

"A gripping true account of a criminal investigation and trial in a small southern town. The characters represent many of the elements so common to southern studies, and Woodfin has done a fine job pulling all this together into a fascinating and compelling dramatic account."
—Harvey H. Jackson III, Jacksonville State University

"Lay Down with Dogs presents an intriguing story in good journalistic fashion. It has wonderful characters, suspense, a good plot, and the additional appeal of some of the state's best-known political and legal names. It provides a probing look at the underside of life in a small Alabama town."—Melton McLaurin, University of North Carolina at Wilmington
