The compelling thriller that launched the career of best-selling novelist Stuart Woods in an anniversary hardcover edition.
In the bitter winter of 1920, the first body is found in Delano, Georgia; the naked corpse of an unidentified teenager. There is no direct evidence of murder, but the body bears marks of what seems to be a ritual beating. The investigation falls to Will Henry Lee, a failed cotton farmer newly appointed as Delano's first chief of police. Lee's obsession with the crime begins a story that weaves through the decades, following the life of a small southern town and the role of three police chiefs in unraveling the crime. Chiefs is the best kind of thriller, where the investigation plays out against the drama beneath the surface of a seemingly placid community, seething with the pressures of race, love, hate, and; always; political power, extending from the town fathers all the way to Washington, DC. With a new foreword by the author, this volume will be a collector's treasure for all fans of Stuart Woods.
This novel was intriguing and one felt as though the characters were really vivid. I cried when Sonny was killed because he was such a kind soul!
Fantastic writing as this is the best novel you have written and I have read many but not all of them. You were blessed with a great talent!
