In this highly engaging true crime piece, Safran immerses himself right in the depths of Mississippi culture, rife with racial and class tension, in an effort to uncover every detail surrounding the murder of a high profile white supremacist he coincidentally met only months before he was killed. Putting any concerns for awkwardness aside, Safran thrusts headfirst into this case, doing his utmost to engage in conversation (occasionally relentlessly pestering) anyone with knowledge on the killer or the victim. In his signature raw gonzo style, Safran brings everything that makes his television programs so grossly enthralling into his first attempt in the realms of true crime writing. A roaring success which is wildly captivating from start to finish, but perhaps not for those of squeamish disposition. Highly recommended.
