On a dark Mississippi night in 1960, a young black Civil Rights leader is murdered, ripped apart by a shotgun blast and left to die in a ditch beside a lonely country road. No arrest is ever made and the murder is never solved. Decades later, the nearly forgotten slaying is resurrected, with deadly consequences. Following a trail of hatred and violence, two unlikely partners--Jefferson Trannon, the son of a revered Civil Rights crusader, and Ella Garrity, the granddaughter of a leader of the KKK--are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that sends them hurtling through the dark history of racism in the Old South and into the frightening shadows of the politics of the New South. Award-winning journalist and former prosecutor Jack Ford infuses The Walls of Jericho with grit and an insider's view of the legal system, weaving together a tale rife with classic Southern charm and powerful Southern retribution--where nothing is truly as it seems, and secrecy trumps all.
