The year was 1948. John Wallace was a powerful, feared man whose family holdings in Meriwether County, Georgia, were known as "The Kingdom." But when he killed a poor tenant farmer in front of eight witnesses, the law was bound to catch up with him. In his contempt for the law, Wallace had inadvertently crossed the county line from Meriwether into Coweta, Sheriff Lamar Potts' county. And the sheriff pursued him relentlessly. Potts ignored threats and pleas as he conducted his investigation; arrested the sheriff of Meriwether County, who was protecting Wallace; and eventually scraped up just enough corpus delicti to fill a small cartridge box. The trial that followed was the first in Georgia in which a white man-and one who held such great power locally. A riveting true story with unforgettable performances and vivid locations. A keeper.
