Perfect JusticeBook - 1993
"Ben Kincaid returns for a new tale of adventure, detection, and courtroom pyrotechnics: Perfect Justice. While vacationing in the Ouachita Mountains, Ben becomes embroiled in volatile small-town politics and a case of homicide fueled by hate." "The crime: the brutal murder by a crossbow of a young Vietnamese immigrant. The defendant: Donald Vick, a remorseless youth and active member of the Anglo Saxon Patrol(ASP), a local white supremacy group. Though revolted by the killing, Ben believes in Donald Vick's right to a fair trial and agrees to represent him. Soon he also begins to believe in Vick's innocence. Yet before the trial begins, his client suddenly - and adamantly - decides to plead guilty." "As members of the Vietnamese community plot to fight fire with fire, Ben frantically searches for the truth. When he infiltrates an isolated ASP camp in the woods, he discovers that what appears to be just another monstrous hate crime could be something else entirely..." "Perfect Justice is a whirlwind novel of suspense that addresses some of the most controversial issues of our time. William Bernhardt paints a riveting portrait of a town torn apart by xenophobia, racism, and violence. With mounting suspense, his anatomy of an incendiary courtroom trial culminates in serpentine twists and sizzling revelations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
