Book Description


Ward James is a reclusive, obsessed young reporter, half of a famous
investigative team in Miami, the son of a newspaper family. His younger
brother, Jack, recently expelled from the University of Florida's
swimming team, and then from the university itself, drives a delivery
truck for their father's paper in northern Florida. The brothers are
brought together when Ward returns home to investigate the case of a man
awaiting execution for the revenge killing of the county's legendary
sheriff. Ward is accompanied by his opportunistic partner, Yardley
Acheman, and Charlotte Bless, an inordinately sexual and determined
woman who has fallen in love through the mail with the sheriff's
murderer. What is uncovered in the months that follow, in the
exploration - and then exploitation - of the murder of Sheriff Thurmond
Call, goes beyond the crime itself to the heart of the characters, and
to the heart of the business of journalism.
