When Sheriff Mapes is summoned to a sugarcane plantation to find a dead Cajun farmer, he knows who committed the crime. Mapes finds himself powerless, however, when nearly 20 elderly black men confess to the murder. Can justice be served, or will the dead man's brutish father pass judgment his way?

An awesome choice for an audio book. All the different actors and accents were truly enjoyable. This story really came alive. Just reading it would not have done it justice.
