In 1954 Mississippi, Jack Branch returns to his father's Delta
estate, Great Oaks, to perform an act of noblesse oblige: teaching
at the local high school.While conducting a class on evil
throughout history, Jack is shocked to discover that his unassuming
student Eddie is the son of the Coed Killer, a notorious local
murderer. Jack feels compelled to mentor the boy, encouraging Eddie
to examine his father's crime and using his own good name to open
the doors that Eddie's lineage can't. But when the investigation
turns in an unexpected direction, Jack finds himself questioning
Eddie's motives--and his own. As the deadly consequences of Jack's
actions fall inescapably into place, Thomas H. Cook masterfully
reveals the darker truths that lurk in the recesses of small-town
lives and in the hearts of well-intentioned men.
