BLOODSTAIN by David Alexander


Email this review


A versatile writer of suspense here turns his lens on a town in the Deep South where survivals, kin to the KKK, (Night Riders in this case) complicate a situation in which Marty Land, New York criminal attorney, famous for getting off hopeless cases, is summoned as a representative for the League for Legal Rights. Land was unprepared for the presumed murderer being condemned in advance by superstition, prejudice and ignorance. Threats and violence dogged his footsteps; he suffered more hurts to pride than to body; but in the end he ferreted out the truth. Fast pace and some rather unusual quirks of development.
