Back by popular demand from Anne L. Thompson-Scretching:
Aggie is the daughter of a card carrying Klansman who has returned to the south after a seven year absence because she is dying. Unbeknownst to her family, she has given birth to a child. The father is a colored Cherokee Indian who lives with his Aunt Lucy and his brother Calvin whose upbringing is obscured in African superstition and Georgia roots. Aggie only reveals the secret to Osceola, that he's the child's father. All hell breaks loose when Clara the woman Osceola is seeing threatens to tell "the law" when she finds out the two were lovers. The law is a childhood friend, Johnny Ray the Sheriff, who is a Klansman and a racist. When Aggie is murdered, the Sheriff gets Osceola fired from his job at Noah Cohen office who is a Jewish lawyer who befriends this colored family. The mystery is who killed Aggie, was it Clara or Calvin who hated her or was it the Sheriff who loved her.
