    Devil in the Grove is the winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction. Arguably the most important American lawyer of the 20th century, Thurgood Marshall was on the verge of bringing the landmark suit Brown v. Board of Education before the U.S. Supreme Court when he became embroiled in an explosive and deadly case that threatened to change the course of the civil rights movement and cost him his life. Despite death threats, the clan, and the urging of his associates, Marshall knew he had to defend "the Groveland Boys".

    Where does Devil in the Grove rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent, kept my attention


    What did you like best about this story?

    The multiple perspectives was fascinating. History focus on the NAACP, Florida Jim Crow, and Thurgood Marshall.


    What about Peter Francis James’s performance did you like?

    Credible and great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Anger… I had to put the "book" down… at the hate and dishonesty. All overwhelming! Paused to think about Florida justice system… same things occurring now.
