Now comes a vivid and haunting tale of one mans search for the truth -- no matter what the consequences. Thomas Dennehy, senior prosecutor in Davidson County, Tennessee, doesnt recognize Nashville anymore: a decade of relentless immigration means cops are learning Spanish, and the DA s office is looking for Vietnamese translators. Thomass latest case is prosecuting Moses Bol, a Sudanese refugee who faces the death penalty for killing a white woman in the Nations, a notorious, racially charged part of town. Bols conviction seems certain, until a university professor claims Thomas sent the wrong man to the death chamber in a previous case. The DA s office is rocked to its core, but within days another blow falls: a beautiful and brilliant anti-death penalty activist mysteriously surfaces as Bols alibi, claiming she was with him at the time of the crime. Bols case becomes a lightning rod as protesters on all sides converge on Nashville and tensions threaten to explode.Meanwhile, Bols alibi has her own secrets -- and is terrified of someone working behind the scenes to get what he wants -- even if it means murder.Will Dennehy be able to piece things together before everything he believes about the law, and about justice, is torn apart?Vivid with the emotional complexity that has become the hallmark of Reed Arvins work, Blood of Angels is filled with nonstop action, impeccable detail, and unforgettable characters, making this a novel that is impossible to resist.
