I'm a big reader of thrillers, especially those with a lot of suspense. I normally don't get into historical fiction, but was on vacation and ran out of books on my reading list. My traveling buddy suggested this book as a great read. I was definitely NOT disappointed. In fact, I raced through this book faster than I have ever read any other book--it was so good I found myself burning the midnight oil while on vacation! The legal aspects of this book, as well as the historical parts about the KKK, fascinated me even these are not usually topics I read about. I would say that if you are a thriller or suspense reader, you are going to love this book--and get an education while you read it! The author will take you on the ride of your life!
