When the body of Jamal Cousin, president of the preeminent black fraternity at Florida's flagship university, is discovered hogtied in the stygian swamps of the Suwannee River, his death sets off a firestorm. And when a fellow student, Mark Towson, the president of a prominent white fraternity, is accused of the crime, the fire threatens to rage out of control. Contending with rising political tensions, racial unrest, and a sensational media, Towson's defense attorney, Jack Swyteck, knows that the stakes could not be higher -- inside or outside the old Suwannee County Courthouse. The evidence against his client, which includes a threatening text message referencing 'strange fruit' on the river, seems overwhelming. Then Jack gets a break that could turn the case.

With a community in chaos and a young man's life in jeopardy, Jack will use every resource to find out
