In 1970, twenty-three-year-old Willie Traynor came to Clanton, Mississippi, and within a year found himself the owner of Ford County's only newspaper. The town was picture perfect, until the brutal rape and murder of a young mother rocked the town and thrust Willie into the center of a storm.
Daring to report the true horrors of the crime, Willie made as many friends as enemies, and over the next decade he sometimes would wonder how he got there in the first place. But he could never escape the crime that shattered his innocence or the criminal who had left an indelible stain. Because as the ghosts of the South's past gather around Willie, as tension swirls around Clanton, men and women who served on a jury nine years ago are starting to die one by one as a killer exacts the ultimate revenge.
