The astonishing true story of a district attorney who declared war on con men, Klansmen, and a corrupt police force--a battle for the soul of an American city, amid the social and political turmoil of the 1920s.
"One heroic American's battle against the forces of darkness and hate. As important today as the day it happened. Vividly told. Essential reading."
-- Michael Benson, author of Gangsters vs Nazis
