Context

Context of A Murder in the Solid South is set in the early and mid-1950s, near the end of an era fastened upon the people of the Old Confederacy by a long-ago war and military occupation. Power was County by County, and what County you lived in could shape your life . or your death. One night there came into our innocence a killing cowardly and brutal, a murder for hire.

Tossed between astonishment, hope and cynicism, we were accused of vicious rumors -- but were our rumors as vicious as the truth?
