Center, TX (Vocus) July 16, 2010
Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Redneck Country...Black Letter Law, a new book of fiction authored by John Russell Smith.
Through its pages, criminal defense attorney J.R. Cuttler begins his Sunday with thoughts of flying his airplane around the East Texas area and later watching his Dallas Cowboys play the hated Washington Redskins. That thought shatters in an instant when the local radio station reports the abduction and rape of a twenty-nine-year-old woman and her twelve-year-old cousin from the local Walmart parking lot. The identity of the victims and the initial allegations as to their assailant draw Cuttler into a capital murder case that would forever change his life and his practice of law. How he tries to solve the case by representing the accused will keep readers on the edge until the very end.
Redneck Country...Black Letter Law symbolizes how some places and its people refused to accept the end of the Civil War by embracing the mindset of the 1850s. Its story reflects strong tones of racism and prejudice. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com, call toll free (888) 795-4274 or send email to orders(at)xlibris(dot)com today.
