Publisher's Summary

Jeff Stetson has received eight NAACP Theater Image Awards for his play The Meeting, which aired on American Playhouse on PBS. He offers a thought-provoking work of fiction with Blood on the Leaves.

Old white men - alleged perpetrators of racial killings during the civil rights struggle - are being brutally murdered in the South. Now it's up to the only black deputy district attorney to prosecute these racially motivated crimes.

Boss Suggested It! Glad I Read It!

Would you listen to Blood on the Leaves again? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed so many of the characters and would love to listen again to see if I can pull out clues that I overlooked during the first listen. I found the writing to be very rich, outstanding dialogue

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood on the Leaves?

Gosh...so many, I suppose when Reynolds returned home and asked his mother to fill in the blanks about the incident that took place when he was a kid- that whole portion was very memorable.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the courtroom scenes. Loved the judge!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed the testimony scene from Dr. Matheson's mother.

Any additional comments?

Could definitely see this as a feature film!
