This book tells a true story about anti-Catholicism in the South during the 1920s. The KKK was a major force in the communities down South (and elsewhere) and well-represented among the police forces and attorneys. As you may know, the KKK was an equal-opportunity hater; not only did they hate black folks but also Jews and Catholics.
The true story described in the book was about a young woman who ran away from her Protestant family to marry a Catholic man. Her father, a passionate Protestant, shot the priest who married his daughter to the Catholic. The priest died and the father was tried in court for murder. Three out of his four attorneys were KKK members at the time and the fourth, future Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, joined the KKK two years later.
The book is well-written, by an attorney, and it illuminates an aspect of the KKK that is often forgotten.
