Summary:

From New York Times bestselling author James Grippando, a riveting, timely story ripped from the headlines. Defense attorney Jack Swyteck defends a white college student charged in Florida’s first racial terror lynching in more than a half century. 
When the body of Jamal Cousin, president of the pre-eminent black fraternity at the University of Florida, is discovered hogtied in the Stygian water swamps of the Suwanee River Valley, the death sets off a firestorm that threatens to rage out of control when 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, knows that the stakes could not be higher—inside or outside the old Suwanee County Courthouse. The evidence against his client seems overwhelming. Then Jack gets a break that could turn the case. Jamal's murder bears disturbing similarities to another lynching that occurred back in the Jim Crow days of 1944. Are the chilling parallels purely coincidental?
With each twist and turn, Jack is convinced that his client may be the victim of something even more sinister than the case presented by the state attorney. For Jack, it’s about the truth. And he’s determined to find it, no matter what the cost.

    I had a particular interest because I live in the Live Oak area but, I found the story pretty engaging. I'm not sure I would have been as entertained if it had not had such a personal connection. I will definitely get another book from the author! The narration was excellent!
