Book Description: 

Based on the true story of a modern-day lynching in America, Ravi Howard’s widely acclaimed debut novel exposes one of the most tragic chapters in the history of the American South.

On the morning of March 21, 1981, in Mobile, Alabama, nineteen-year-old Michael Donald was found dead, his body badly beaten and hanging from a tree on Herndon Avenue. Brothers Paul and Roy Deacon of the Deacon Memorial Funeral Home are called upon to bury their close friend and classmate, and the experience will leave them forever changed. Along with other residents of their hometown, the Deacon brothers must struggle to understand the circumstances surrounding Donald’s murder—the city’s first lynching in more than sixty years and a gruesome reminder of racial inequalities in the New South.


19-year-old Michael Donald was kidnapped by three KKK members
