Woods' reach exceeds his grasp in his third and least successful southern novel...an ambitious but confused potboiling down of the New South into a melodramatic stew of political jockeying, racial strife, and murder.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

From bestselling author Stuart Woods, a legal thriller featuring attorney Will Lee who travels South to return to his Georgia roots—and gets involved in a political firestorm that could make or break his career.

Will Lee has returned to his roots to kick off his campaign for the Senate. A prominent lawyer, he has come back to his hometown of Delano, Georgia, to plan his strategies...and to argue an explosively controversial case that could seriously damage his political career. For Delano is a town with a dark secret—a smoldering hotbed of racial hatred and moral outrage, held in the thrall of a sinister white-supremacist group called The Elect...a breeding ground for violent, evil forces that will stop at nothing to keep the candidate out of office. At first, Will Lee was running for the Senate. But now he is running for his life.

Add a high-powered romance...the messy fallout from the suicide of Lee’s campaign manager and a radical movement dead set on keeping Lee from living until the election and you have a hard-to-put-down, highly entertaining book.
