In a cramped cell in the maximum security unit of Mississippi State Prison--the notorious Parchman Farm--Jeri Turner squats on the concrete floor and leans into the vent hung above the toilet. The voice rumbling through the vent rhapsodizes about feasts of strawberries and chocolate cake while around him inmates are starving.

When she's released, Jeri risks her own life and the life of someone she loves to uncover the truth about the mysterious prisoner. That truth gives her the answer to a question flung at her by her fellow volunteers, one that seared her conscience: Is it right to rouse an evil giant when you have no hope of slaying him?

Her ability to create and hold tension is a consistent strength in this novel, and the novel’s tension parallels the tension generated during that era.
