Chiefs is the first in Stuart Woods' long list of books. It is about police chiefs from a small in Georgia over a few decades as they look for a serial killer. It introduces characters who will appear in other books by Woods. It is my favorite of his books because it gives a history to his stories.

For the people of Delano, Georgia, 1920 was a landmark year. that winter they elected their first police chief, built the fir jail...and discovered the first body--the naked, brutalized corpse of a young boy. So began a forty-year manhunt that would embroil three generations of small-town police chiefs in the dark, twisted secrets of their sleepy, God-fearing community--and expose a seamy underbelly of hatred, corruption, and perversion too terrible to imagine...and too virulent to ignore.

"Chiefs" is part of a series of books with Will Lee. It starts in 1919 and traces a family into the 60's. It has a variety of lines; murder, intrigue, race, politics, and down-to-earth, good hearted people. Being from Georgia and growing up near where the story takes place, I found it particularly interseting and did not want to put it down. My second Stuart Woods book, but NOT my last.

Must read. Best book by Stuart Woods. In a style completely different from the Alex Cross novels. Also the first book in a series of stories about the Lee Family.

In the winter of 1920, the first body is found in Delano, Ga. the naked brutalized corpse of a young boy. It is a crime too horrific to be ignored, the first of many that will span four decades, embroiling three separate police chiefs in a remarkable manhunt that will expose the hatreds, fears, dark secrets and festering wounds beneath the surface of their sleepy god fearing community.

This is the first Wood's fiction. Set in the southern town of Delano, the story spans 40+ years. Three very different chiefs of the town's police force try to solve a series of suspicious deaths. It is a compelling read of the social changes in the American town during turbulent times. I loved it!

I am a white woman dating a black man and this book showed me things I have never known about the world of prejudice in the old days. I loved, loved, loved this book even though at times I was made to feel very angry. Very good book.
Hope you enjoy it if you choose it.
Happy reading.
