Over forty years ago, Stuart Woods found a battered chief
of police badge in his grandmother’s house. It had belonged to his grandfather,
who had been shot in the line of duty. The story of the lawman’s death inspired
Woods to write Chiefs. This novel won an Edgar Award and was made
into a popular TV miniseries. Now you can enjoy this thrilling book on audio.
In a novel that spans fifty years of racial tension,
politics, and murder in the small Southern town of Delano, Georgia, a depraved
killer claims his innocent victims even as three very different generations of
policemen seek to stop him.
For the people of Delano, 1920 was a landmark year. That winter they
elected their first police chief, built the first jail … and discovered the
first body—the naked, brutalized corpse of a young boy. So began a forty-year
manhunt that would embroil three generations of small-town police chiefs in the
dark, twisted secrets of their sleepy, God-fearing community—and expose a seamy
underbelly of hatred, corruption, and perversion too terrible to imagine … and
too virulent to ignore. Download and start listening now!
