Editorial Reviews

Review

"Must-read, cannot-put-down history." (New York Times)

"Superb." (Junot Diaz, author of This Is How You Lose Her)"A powerful and well-told drama of Southern injustice." (The Chicago Tribune)

"Devil in the Grove
is a compelling look at the case thatforged Thurgood Marshall's perception of himself as a crusader for civil rights. . . . King's style [is] at once suspenseful and historicallymeticulous" (Christian Science Monitor)

"Recreates an important yet overlooked moment in American history with a chilling, atmospheric narrative that reads more like a Southern Gothicnovel than a work of history." (Salon)

"A taut, intensely readable narrative." (Boston Globe)

"A thoroughgoing study of one of the most important civil-rights casesargued by Thurgood Marshall in dismantling Jim Crow strictures. . . .Deeply researched and superbly composed." (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) )
"

In the terrifying story of the Groveland boys Gilbert King recreates an extraordinary moment in America's long, hard struggle for racialjustice. Devil in the Grove is a harrowing, haunting, utterly mesmerizing book." (Kevin Boyle, author of Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age)
