If you enjoy books about the KKK, lynching mobs and good ole Southern white boys who hate blacks, this just might be the book for you.

This is not an enjoyable book. It's rather depressing and racially tense. Had the premise indicated what this book was truly about, I never would have picked it up.

She will hook you with her believable characters, dialogue, and page-turning suspense. And I promise, when you put down the book and look out the window, you won't believe where you are.

First Louis Kincaid story. Very good character development and plot. P. J. Parish (actually 2 sisters) off to a great start.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a great story with good characters and it really gives a sense of what it was like in the deep south.

I like the character Louis Kincaid but I couldn't stay with this one, it moves so slow and introduces just too many people to keep up with and it's way too long mainly because it has pages and pages of nothing but just stretching it out.

On a cold and rain swept December morning, a hunter finds a human skeleton in the woods of Black Pool, Mississippi. For twenty, perhaps thirty years, these bones have lain in a shallow grave of dirt and leaves - until time and weather conspired to unearth them. Twenty-four years ago, Louis Kincaid was born to a black mother and white father who drifted out of their lives shortly after his son's birth. On leave from his job in Michigan, Louis has just started a temporary position with the Black Pool sheriff's department when the skeleton is discovered. But as he pursues his investigation, he quickly rediscovers what it means to be a black man in a white's man town, and what it means to be a half-white cop when he seeks help from Black Pool's African American community. The hostility he feels from both sides only escalates when Abigail Lillihouse, the passionate daughter of Black Pool's most prominent white citizen, falls hard for him. Most of all, Louis will find that he's stumbled onto a case that will tear Black Pool apart and spill secrets too ugly to bear. For there are those who have been waiting for years to tell the story of a long-ago night of terror - and others who will go to any length to silence them.

This turned out to be pretty good. At page 65 I could kind of guess what happened, but the author had quite a few twists and turns and it kept me hooked. Think I'm going to check out a few other books by this author.
