Product description

Product Description

One man is found hanging from a tree. Another is passed out in the truck that holds the rope.

In this second big case for Defense Attorney Monroe T. Lovett, not everything is what it seems on the surface.

Monroe will have to weave through racial tension mixed with murder and cover up all in the small Southern town as he defends his client, Ricky Magee, found at the crime scene, in what appears to be an open and shut case against him. The evidence seems rock-solid. The victim is Demonte Williams, a young African-American man and supposed friend of Magee's. Groggy and claiming to have no memory of how he got there, Magee, who appears to have been in a fight, maintains his innocence, despite the vast amount of evidence to the contrary.

Nerves are on edge with the arrival of a national civil rights leader, Rev.Charles Louis, who brings his brand of justice with him. He takes the Williams family under his arms as he calls for support and protests. Reverend Louis wants Magee prosecuted as a racist and local prosecutor Robert Breaux agrees, adding on a hate-crime charge.

Answering the Reverend's call, Peregrine's town square becomes the landing spot for the KKK, Black Panthers and other racial activists, fanatics. Not to be outdone, the national media enters the chaos, adding fuel to the fire. Why is there such a strong reaction to a small-town murder? Demonte Williams was hanging from a tree with the other end rope tied to the bumper of Ricky Magee's pickup. Race becomes then number one motive. However, as Monroe studies the evidence, he soon realizes something's not right, but getting to the truth will require risk, a significant risk.

This case causes tension between almost everyone involved. Debbie, Monroe's wife, questions him taking the case. Even Monroe's investigator, retired New Orleans Police Detective Edward (Herm) Hermann, questions Magee's innocence. Across the aisle, the prosecution is butting heads with each other and with Reverend Louis. Not to be left out, Judge Harper, an African-American, is caught in the middle as he engages in an intense argument with Louis.

Needing this conviction, Reverend Louis paints a target on Monroe, trying to stop him by whatever means necessary. He needs Magee convicted of this crime.

A new face joins the prosecution. District Attorney Breaux has added a new assistant district attorney to his staff, Adrienne Scott. She's a headstrong young lawyer who has her own ambitions and will do whatever it takes to reach her goal, especially if it means crushing Monroe Lovett. She sees Reverend Louis as vital to helping her achieve her success, and blurring the lines comes naturally for her.

All hope seems lost for Magee as a mostly African American jury, and an African Americ judge tries him. He is ready to face his fate; however, the only thing keeping him going is Monroe's assurance of uncovering the truth. That moment of hope comes when someone offers a piece of evidence that can prove Magee's innocence. There's only one problem; the evidence is somewhere in a heap of notes and photographs of a conspiracy theorist requiring Monroe, Debbie, and Herm to sift through it for the answers as time runs out in the trial.
