A senate election, a controversial murder trial and a string of vigilante killings are compelling plot elements woven into this "tautly drawn suspense novel." PW noted that although the ingenuity runs out in the final chapters, "Woods's headlong storytelling style is stoked with enough sex and violence to ignite a TV miniseries."

When Georgia Senator Ben Carr has a stroke, his chief of staff, Will Lee, decides to run for Carr's seat. Concurrently Lee has been appointed public defender for a white man accused of murdering a young black woman--a case full of explosive racial tension. The election campaign is a nasty one involving a militaristic right-wing group, a TV evangelist with a mission, and a power-hungry governor. The various plot lines, though a little too contrived, move the story at a smart pace. A consummate storyteller, Woods ( Under the Lake , LJ 6/1/87) demonstrates his narrative ability by intertwining contemporary southern politics and the murder trial into a most satisfying tale.
