Synopsis

***Updated*** Corrections made in the body of the story.
“Lord help me, I done found another body in the creek. Same place as I found poor Mr. Freddie Boyer. Done in the same way, too. Can you come on down home, Mr. Jordan? I’m so scared, I don’t know what to do.”
Fifteen years ago, Charlie Russell found a body floating in the Hanahatchee River. Shortly after, Jordan Tanner found the rest of the man’s family dead. Now, Jordan must face his memories to uncover the real murderer and save the man accused of the crime before the past has a chance to repeat itself. Will he be able to find the real killer in time to stay the execution of an innocent man, or will the real killer catch up with him first?
Set in the 1930s, this is a fictional account of an actual crime committed and the attempt to seek justice for an innocent man convicted on circumstantial evidence and the color of his skin.
