Tom Dooley: American Tragedy

(2016)
A novel by

 
Some men return from war to a life
of peace. Tom Dooley returned from
the Civil War and became embroiled
in a tumultuous affair with Ann Foster
Melton, a married woman. Their
affair was openly known throughout
the community. Later, Tom becomes
involved with two of Ann's cousins,
Pauline Foster and Laura Foster. When
it is learned that Tom is about to elope
with Laura, who is then found murdered,
there are plenty of suspects, Tom being
the principal one. He and Ann Foster
are arrested for the crime. Tom claims
that Ann had nothing to do with the
murder, although he does not openly
admit his own guilt. He is tried, defended
by the state's former governor, Zebulon
Vance. Though he is found guilty, there
are those who believe Tom is innocent,
wondering why he would kill the girl
he was going to run away with.
