Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details and the paper began to prosper. The murderer, Danny Padgitt was tried before a packed courthouse in Clanton, Mississippi. The trial came to a startling and dramatic end when he was found guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison, but in Mississippi, in 1970, "life" didn't necessarily mean "life" and nine years later Danny Padgitt managed to get himself paroled. He returned to Ford County and the retribution began.

Synopsis:

The best-selling author of The King of Torts and other works of legal suspense presents a new thriller that incorporates his signature themes of corruption, high drama, and the quest for the truth in today's justice system, in the story of a convicted murderer who may be out to seek revenge against the jurors who sent him to prison nine years earlier. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
