Synopsis: An award-winning investigative journalist recounts a story of a sanctioned murder and miscarried justice that brings home the hard truth about America's stubborn legacy of racism. 35,000 first printing. $25,000 ad/promo.

Review: On Christmas Day, 1987, a law-abiding black man with a wife and six children went on what should have been a brief errand. He was stopped by a white police chief in a small Texas town near the Louisiana border, taken to jail, and beaten to death with a lead-filled blackjack. Award-winning journalist Howard Swindle, himself a Texan, draws on his personal knowledge to tell a spellbinding tale about the local law-enforcement and criminal-justice systems, both before and during this landmark case. "As if the 70-foot-tall pines were an impenetrable social barrier," Swindle writes, "Deep East Texas lies stagnant in a civil rights time warp, more forties and fifties than eighties and nineties." The New York Times praised "the author's compelling storytelling [that] enriches every page of this nonfiction thriller."

Also recommended: Swindle's Edgar-Award-nominated Trespasses: Portrait of a Serial Rapist.
