A Quinn Colson Novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Places

Thirty-six years ago, a nameless black man wandered into Jericho, Mississippi, with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of paratrooper boots. Less than two days later, he was accused of rape and murder, hunted down by a frenzied posse, and lynched.

Now evidence of his innocence has surfaced, and county sheriff Quinn Colson sets out to identify the stranger’s remains and charge those responsible for the lynching. But as he starts to uncover old lies and secrets of corruption, he runs up against fierce opposition from those with the most to lose—and they’re not afraid to play dirty.

Soon Colson will find himself implicated in terrible crimes, and the accusations just might stick. As the two investigations come to a head, it is anybody’s guess who will prevail—or who will come out of it alive.
