About This Item

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, July 2005. Mass Market Paperback. Near Fine. Slight edgewear. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 578 pages.

A classic American mystery saga about three generations of lawmen tangled in a web of passion, secrets, destiny, and murder in their small Southern town. Winner of the Edgar Award. In the winter of 1920, the first body is found in Delano, Georgia--the naked, brutalized corpse of a young boy. It is a crime too horrific to be ignored, the first of many that will span four decades--embroiling three police chiefs in a remarkable manhunt that will expose the hatreds, fear, and festering wounds beneath the surface of their sleepy God-fearing community.

Synopsis

Stuart Woods' Edgar(r) Award-winning novel spans fifty years of racial tension, politics, and murder in the small Southern town of Delano, Georgia, where a depraved killer claims his innocent victims even as three very different generations of policemen seek to stop him. For the people of Delano, Georgia, 1920 was a landmark year. That winter they elected their first police chief, built the first jail. . .and discovered the first body -- the naked, brutalized corpse o a young boy. So began a forty-year manhunt that would embroil three generations of small-town police chiefs in the dark, twisted secrets of their sleepy, God-fearing community -- and expose a seamy underbelly of hatred, corruption, and perversion too terrible to imagine. . .and too virulent to ignore.
