Summary
James Grippando delivers his most explosive and riveting suspense novel yet: a powerful and timely story of race, politics, injustice, and murder as shocking and incendiary as today?s headlines, in which Jack Swyteck defends a white college student charged with a heinous racial crime?the first lynching in Florida in more than a half century. When the body of Jamal Cousin, president of the preeminent black fraternity at Florida?s flagship university, is discovered hog-tied in the stygian swamps of the Suwannee River Valley, the death sets off a firestorm that threatens to rage out of control as a fellow student, Mark Towson, the president of a prominent white fraternity, is accused of the crime. Contending with rising political tensions, racial unrest, and a sensational media, Towson?s defense attorney, Jack Swyteck, fears the worst. The evidence against his client?which includes a threatening text message referencing "strange fruit" on the river?seems overwhelming. Then Jack gets a break that could turn the case. Jamal?s gruesome murder bears disturbing similarities to another lynching that occurred back in the Jim Crow days of 1944. Are the chilling parallels purely coincidental? With a community in chaos and a young man?s life in jeopardy, Jack will use every resource to find out. As he navigates each twist and turn of the search, Jack becomes increasingly convinced that his client may himself be the victim of a criminal plan more sinister than the case presented by the state attorney. Risking his own reputation, this principled man who has devoted his life to the law plunges headfirst into the darkest recesses of the South?s past?and its murky present?to uncover answers. For Jack, it?s about the truth. Traversing time, from the days of strict segregation to the present, he?ll find it?no matter what the cost?and bring much-needed justice to Suwannee County
