What Readers Have Said About “Deadly Greed”
“A gangland style murder set in a small southern town with all the complications of race, romance, unbridled business ambition, is the backdrop for Clark Cox’s gripping mystery. It would be one of the best fiction books of the year, but for one thing. Every word is true.” –D. G. Martin, retired Vice President of The University of North Carolina System, host of UNC-TV’s North Carolina Bookwatch
“Deadly Greed is the compelling story of a gangland style murder in a small southern town. Winner of the Willie Parker Peace History Book Award from North Carolina Society of Historians, Clark Cox’s book is a page-turner that offers a window into North Carolina history and life.” –Thomasi McDonald, The News & Observer
Clark Cox has done a masterful job of reminding us of the popularity, the charisma of Maceo McEachern. Few, white or black could resist it. Cox tells of the warts as well...McEachern (was) a rising star in a county that loses most of its young talent to more sophisticated areas; a star extinguished before reaching its brightest. – J. Neal Cadieu, Richmond County Journal
“(Cox’s) rich characterization, his eye for the most telling detail, and his insight into the workings of the human heart make for a compelling Faulknerian topography of greed, murder, love and suicide. –Stephen Smith, The Pilot.
