Baker & Taylor
While campaigning, judge and occasional sleuth Deborah Knott joins forces with ex-Black Panther Wallace Adderly to discover who is responsible for the fiery destruction of two African American churches--one of which caused the death of a young man

Blackwell North Amer
One place the two Souths - black and white - meet is in Judge Deborah Knott's courtroom.
Busy with her reelection campaign and building a new house on land that has been in her family for generations, Deborah has both deep roots and a professional stake in her community. She's shaken when her nephew A.K. is arrested with a group of vandalizing teens at a local cemetery. Torn between her duty as a judge and her loyalty to her large, close-knit family, Deborah has to decide how far she can go to protect him.
Then the first black church burns.
Determined to investigate the arson in which A.K. has become a suspect, Deborah Knott is quickly swept into the dark undercurrents of prejudice, pain, and betrayal in this rural Southern county. Add to this the sudden arrival of a 1970s black activist turned public figure, the emerging secrets of an angry young woman, and the burning of two more churches, and Deborah faces a crisis that will challenge her political acumen, her detective skills, and her core beliefs.
