Will Lee has returned to his roots to kick off his campaign for the Senate. A prominent lawyer, he has come back to his hometown of Delano, Georgia, to plan his strategies and to argue an explosively controversial case that could seriously damage his fledgling political career. For Delano is a town with a dark secret—a smoldering hotbed of racial hatred and moral outrage held in the thrall of a sinister white-supremacist group called The Elect. The group’s violent, evil forces will stop at nothing to keep the candidate out of office, but Lee isn’t about to back down.

At first, Will Lee was running for the Senate. Now he is running for his life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Three compelling plot lines are woven into a tautly drawn suspense novel by the author of Chiefs ; not a whodunit or a howdunit, but a how-does-it-all-connect … Woods builds these plots to reach their climaxes …  His headlong storytelling style is stoked with enough sex and violence to ignite a TV miniseries.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The various plot lines … move the story at a smart pace. A consummate storyteller, Woods demonstrates his narrative ability by intertwining contemporary southern politics and the murder trial into a most satisfying tale.”

    Library Journal

  • “Stuart Woods knows how to spin a yarn to capture even the most blasé listener, and Whitener makes it happen.”
