James Reynolds is Mississippi's only black deputy district attorney and his conviction rate is second to none. He firmly believes the law is the only way to true, color-blind justice. But he will soon prosecute the most emotionally wrenching case of his career. White men responsible for brutal murders during the civil rights era are turning up dead, and a renowned African-American professor is charged with the crimes. Now, amid an overwhelming media blitz, Reynolds finds himself on a playing field where the rules change every day. A man with rage in his heart knows Reynolds' deepest secrets...and is using them to exact a very personal kind of vengeance.
I was intrigued by the synopsis then ordered it from Barnes & Noble. Once I started reading it, I realized the author is new and seems to be a rambler. It drags on for the first 63 pages with details the reader may get bored with quickly as I did. But then it starts to heat up. I say give this book a chance.
