In 1966 in Pulaski, Tennessee, Bocephus Haynes watched in horror as his father was brutally murdered by 10 local members of the Ku Klux Klan. As an African American lawyer practicing in the birthplace of the Klan years later, Bo has spent his life pursuing justice in his father's name. But when Andy Walton, the man believed to have led the lynch mob 45 years earlier, ends up murdered in the same spot as Bo's father, Bo becomes the prime suspect.
Retired law professor Tom McMurtrie, Bo's former teacher and friend, is a year removed from returning to the courtroom. Now McMurtrie and his headstrong partner, Rick Drake, must defend Bo on charges of capital murder while hunting for Andy Walton's true killer. In a courtroom clash that will put their reputations and lives at stake, can McMurtrie and Drake release Bo from a lifetime of despair? Or will justice remain hidden somewhere between black and white?

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Between Black and White is a compelling legal thriller dealing with race relations. However, it is not quite as good as The Professor which was Book 1 in the McMurtrie & Drake legal thriller series. Worship of the University of Alabama football program and coach Paul "Bear" Bryant has gotten to be a bit much. Nevertheless, this is an outstanding legal thriller which I recommend. Eric G Dove does a superb job as narrator. This is a very worthwhile series.
It's obvious the writer is a major Alabama football fan but he spins a good tale. I recommend this book.
Superb reading with twists and turns at every chapter. Life throws curve balls you just have to clear your mind, rethink your actions and live a mighty long time. Allow forgiveness
I personally loved the book. it was a different kind of read then I normally select, and it surprised me that I was so into it. The narrator utilized each character in a special way that made me visualize the movie and settings of scenes.
