A career lawman will bear witness to the final judgement, as a man he put away twenty years ago is about to be excecuted for the brutal slaying of two hikers. However, his conscience is no longer clear to the point of absolute certainty about the man's guilt. Also of intense interest to the lawman is the parallel between the current events and a legendary murder and execution over 100 years old--the story of a great injustice, and a woman condemned to die for a crime she didn't commit. Suddenly, the sheriff finds himself in a race against and across time to see that history doesn't repeat itself!

A Book Relay going to Maurean in Florida. Enjoy!

I snagged this from the relays (thanks, Tribefan!) because I read "She Walks These Hills" and really enjoyed it, so I thought I'd try another in her Appalachian series.

Just finished reading this, and was sorry to have it end. I think that McCrumb is one of the finest "storytellers" in contemporary fiction, and this interesting combination of a true life mystery and a detective novel was so compelling and vividly written that I couldn't put it down.

I was pleased to find the title of two more Appalachian Ballads that I have yet to read; "The Rosewood Casket" & "The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter", both of which I *will* look for.
