Grippando has been one of my favorite authors for some time. This newest is no exception. Jack defends Mark, a white frat president against the crime of murdering a black frat president, Jamal, from another fraternity. The circumstances surrounding the murder of 5-year old Willie James in 1944 during Jim Crow days, becomes an integral part of Jamal's defense. A must-read.

Great read. I couldn’t put it down. The story deals with racism and the lawyer is Jack Swyteck defending the accused. I discovered James Grippando about two years ago and have been reading his books ever since.
