The factory manager, a college-educated Jew named Leo Frank, was arrested, tried, and convicted in a trial that seized national headlines. When the governor commuted his death sentence, Frank was kidnapped and lynched by a group of prominent local citizens. The author's acclaimed account recreates the entire story for the first time, from the police investigations to the gripping trial to the brutal lynching and its aftermath. A definitive account of one of American history's most repellent and most fascinating moments. Illus., Notes, Bibliog. and Index. 742pp. trade size softcover. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. F. with no creasing to covers. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
