"So much happens-and so much of it is unexpected-in Suzanne Lebsock's gripping study of the sensational ax murder of Lucy Jane Pollard...that we can only urge readers to read for themselves the acclaimed author's brilliant descriptions of racial politics (four African Americans were accused), the constant threat of lynching, the vicious court battles and how it all ended." "How refreshing! Honest-to-goodness, 100 percent-genuine facts in an age of docudramas and fictional histories...Impressive job of historical re-creation...[Lebsock] has done a service in resuscitating this forgotten tale."Rezension:
"[Makes] history, with all its messiness, ugliness, and even humanity, come vividly alive." Chicago Tribune
