The Book Gayle King Is Raving About (and More Favorites)
By Jack Ford
It sounds like a true story: A young law professor and a reporter combine forces to solve the decade-old murder of a civil-rights activist. The evidence points to the man running for the highest political office in Mississippi. "It's the kind of case that our legal analyst Jack Ford would join us to talk about," said Gayle on CBS This Morning. "But actually it's the plot of his second novel....This book took so many twists and turns, but it all made sense to me."
