The King of Babylon Shall : Not Come Against You
In the first week of April 1968, the tiny Florida town of Paradise Springs is stunned by two murders, a suicide, a kidnapping, and arson. That same week the nation is shocked by the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., in Memphis, and the riots that follow. A quarter of a century later an investigative reporter sets out to reconstruct those violent times and make sense of them. His research uncovers the most unexpected answers - and draws him into a maze of the most curious happenings to come out of a small town. Part detective story, part evocation of the heady, violent end of the 60s, this novel reverberates with history and the human comedy.
