New excitement from the master of the legal thriller
Pete Banning is Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son: returning war hero, patriarch of a prominent family, farmer, father, neighbor, faithful member of the Methodist church. Then, one cool October morning in 1946, he rises early, drives into town, walks into the Church, and calmly shoots and kills the Reverend Dexter Bell.
As if the murder isn’t shocking enough, Pete’s only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his defense attorney, to the judge, to his family and friends, and to the people of Clanton—is “I have nothing to say.” And so, the murder of the esteemed Reverend Bell becomes the most mysterious and unforgettable crime Ford County has ever known.
Don’t miss this powerful new legal thriller from the undisputed master.
