The Ways of the Dead

(2014)
(The first book in the Sully Carter series)
A novel by

 
 
When the teenage daughter of a powerful Washington, D.C., judge is found dead, three local black kids are arrested for her murder - but reporter Sully Carter suspects there's more to the case. From the city's grittiest backstreets to the elegant halls of power, wry yet wounded Sully pursues a string of cold cases, all the while fighting against pressure from government officials, police, suspicious locals, and his own bosses at the newspaper. Based on the real-life 1990s Princeton Place murders, Neely Tucker' s debut novel is a pitch-perfect rendering of a fast-paced newsroom and a layered, edge-of-your-seat mystery sure to please fans of Elmore Leonard and George Pelecanos.
