Cover: An Unspeakable Crime: The Prosecution and Persecution of Leo Frank

“Alphin does a creditable job of unraveling the mess the trial became, a tangle of ‘lies heaped on lies,’ and the rightly ambiguous title leaves readers wondering about two unspeakable crimes – the murder and the public lynching of Leo Frank. Each chapter opens with a dramatic quotation, and period photographs and reprints of newspaper stories contribute to a thorough accounting of a city’s judicial system at its worst. Fans of legal thrillers and courtroom dramas will find this outstanding.” —Kirkus
