In suspense driven, True Crime mode King tells the story of Thurgood Marshall’s famous legal victory in the case of 4 young black men accused of raping a young white woman in the small town of Groveland, Florida, 1949.
It’s a great story and King uses foreshadowing, dialogue, cliff-hanger section endings and other devices to turn it into a page turner. Marshall going on to become the first African-American Associate of Justice on the US Supreme Court makes it even more interesting. There are usually no spoilers in non-fiction – the tale has often been told in the media or schools – but this is one of those times when I didn’t know the details of the ending and really wanted to let them unfold in King’s capable hands. Wow!! >>>>MORE>>>>
