A death in Live Oak  Cover Image Book Book

A death in Live Oak / James Grippando.


When the body of Jamal Cousin, president of the pre-eminent black fraternity at the Florida's flagship university, is discovered hogtied in the Stygian water swamps of the Suwanee River Valley, the death sets off a firestorm. When Mark Towson, the president of a prominent white fraternity, is accused of the crime, defense attorney Jack Swyteck knows that the stakes could not be higher. Jamal's gruesome murder bears disturbing similarities to another lynching that occurred back in the Jim Crow days of 1944. Are the chilling parallels purely coincidental?
