Fogbound

(2003)
A novel by

 
 
They are a strange combination. The old judge, whose concessions to the modern world are a beat-up red pickup, a small sailboat, and possibly a flush toilet. He has no phone, no radio, no TV or computer. August Jorgenson's home these days is a decommissioned lighthouse in the Jersey marshes, his only companion his old black Lab. He throws away without opening any mail he receives on his rare trips to the nearby village.

In contrast, there's the sophisticated trio from the world that the judge abandoned years ago, after the death of his wife. They're TV honchos from the city, full of an exciting plan to present to the old judge - a plan to arm him with the weapon to strike a mortal blow against capital punishment. Judge Jorgenson is the key, the ideal figure to make it work, and so he must be lured back into the "real world."

The young man condemned to death is African-American, from a poor family, and, according to the judge's visitors, mentally or emotionally lost somehow in his own head. Jorgensen hardens himself to say no to the television executives. He does his best to resist opening the envelope they left, which, he thinks, contains the nuts and bolts of the case. But he finally does, and what he finds there changes his mind. He agrees to take the case, to try to overturn the death penalty decision and save Boyd Davis's life.

Jorgenson throws himself into the task with his old fervor. What he doesn't know is that the people from the media are using both the judge and Boyd Davis for their own ends. Only when it seems too late does Jorgenson learn what he and Boyd Davis are really up against.
