Reviews
Salon.com Wexler's telling has all the elements of a horrific Southern mystery...an admirable accomplishment.
Melissa Fay Greene The Atlanta Journal-Constitution This is an outstanding work of narrative journalism, a book about murders and cover-ups that gleams with the plain beauty of truth-telling.
Los Angeles Times Thoroughly researched and superbly written.
Juan Williams author of Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965 This is Truman Capote's In Cold Blood with the added fuel of race, sex, and the quirks of Southern culture.
