And the Dead Shall Rise: The Murder of Mary Phagan and the Lynching of Leo Frank by Steve Oney
When President Bill Clinton needed legal advice for a variety of personal issues he faced in office, including his impeachment proceedings, he went to fellow Rhodes scholar David E. Kendall. Kendall’s other clients have included the Motion Picture Association of America and the Washington Post. He’s a partner at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C.
“A dark but spellbinding account of the murder of Mary Phagan, and the arrest, trial, appeal, clemency proceedings and lynching of Leo Frank. With astonishing historical detective work spanning decades, we learn who was in the lynch mob, how the lynching was organized and carried out, and why the cover-up was successful so long.”
