Publisher's Summary

Hack Holland is a product of the South, both old and new. Hard-drinking ex-POW and wealthy, progressive Democrat, he stands in the long shadow cast by his ancestors.

When Holland's candidacy for a congressional seat brings him increasingly into conflict with those around him, his almost unwitting involvement with a violent civil rights conflict forces him to reassess his future - and his past....

What the Critics Say

"A fantastic novelist…so far above the prevailing standards of crime fiction that it is pointless to make the comparison" (Daily Express)

    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was very good, But, he just isn't Will. Whom all fans of the Burke writing style, I am sure, relate to as being Huckelberry Holland. Nonetheless great story, great narration and we want more Huck escapades.
