Product Description

In 1964, Coop Lindsay has a thriving law practice in Justice, Mississippi. When an African American maid who once worked for Coop's family asks him to defend her grandson, Martin Jennings, on charges of rape and murder, the attorney takes the case. It's a decision that divides the town, but Coop devotedly digs for facts, faces attempts on his life, fights against all odds . . . and wins. A few weeks later the boy disappears and Coop Lindsay is murdered.

Almost 50 years later, Coop's grandson, Clark, returns to Justice and to the old family home. Opening his own law practice, his first case is just as controversial as the one that ended his grandfather's life. This time the victim is African American and the suspect is white. The tables have turned, but the racial tension is just as high. Clark digs for evidence with the tenacity characteristic of his family. But even he doesn't know that this crime will reveal clues to the 1964 Jennings case and may even uncover his grandfather's killer as well-if only he can stay alive long enough to prove it.

    This is another great novel from one of my favorite authors.

    The action takes place in Justice, Mississippi, and consists of two murder trials fifty years apart. In 1964 a college aged black man is accused or murdering a high school aged white girl. The conviction seems a done deal in the racially charged town.

    Cooper Lindsay, son of the pastor of Justice Methodist Church and recently returned to the town as a lawyer, is approached by the boy's mother. Convinced he is innocent, she asks Coop to represent him. Coop struggles with the decision, knowing it would put himself and his wife and children in danger and would effectively end his career in his hometown. Remembering his deceased father's sermons on the Good Samaritan, he takes the case.

    The situation does turn deadly as tempers flare and old hurts are resurrected. We readers are not privy to all the results of the violence until another trial takes place in Justice, fifty years later.

    I really liked this novel. Collins has really laid bare the racial tension in the town. I really liked Coop as a character. He is a man who struggles with doing the right thing, knowing it might bring harm to his family. Yet his father's sermons ring in his ears, inspiring him to see that justice is done.

    I have never lived in the south and this book is an eye opener to the prejudice that can still reside in the hearts of people. As we find out in the book, that prejudice can originate in a lie and needlessly hurt many people.

    Collins has given us a well thought out plot that spans half a century and reveals the darker side of mankind, yet encourages us with those determined to right the wrong that dark side causes. I recommend it.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
