This has a double market in your mystery hounds, though it is not primarily for that group. A readable tale of an Eastern Tennessee valley, where lawyers of the old school of oratory are friends, out of court, enemies before the judge, where current behavior and beliefs have not penetrated and fundamentalism holds sway. It is a story of harbored vengeance, a twenty years span, and at the close failure to mete out long dreamed of justice. Has somewhat the appeal of the Judge Priest stories. Good rental library material -- for men readers especially.
