Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

The #1 Wall Street Journal ebook bestseller about the murder that shocked Savannah society and inspired the blockbuster film. As a premier antiques dealer in Savannah, Jim Williams had it all: style, culture, charisma, and sophistication. But three decades of hard work came crashing down the night he shot Danny Hansford, his wild young lover. Jim Williams stood trial four times over the next decade for premeditated murder. While Clint Eastwood’s movie—starring Kevin Spacey and Jude Law—and the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt portrayed the natives of Savannah as remarkably decadent, exotic characters, they missed the surprising dark side of Jim Williams himself. He was a smooth predator whose crimes could have put him behind bars long before the death of Danny Hansford. After Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is Marilyn Bardsley’s continuation of the story, which includes crucial testimony recreating the courtroom drama between a gifted prosecutor and a brilliant defense attorney as they battle over the future of a self-made aristocrat. More than forty photos and revealing insider interviews bring new life to the vivid cast of characters in this unique southern crime story. “[A] provocative summer read.” —Savannahnow.com

Als die neunzehnjährige Tina Rutherford verschwindet, ist jedem in Chabot, Mississippi klar, wer dafür verantwortlich ist. Denn 25 Jahre zuvor war schon die junge Cindy Walker nach einem Date mit dem Nachbarssohn Larry Ott spurlos verschwunden. Für das Verbrechen konnte Larry aus Mangel an Beweisen nie verurteilt werden, wurde aber fortan gemieden und lebte in ritualisierter Einsamkeit. Erneut unter Verdacht, ist sein Haus vermehrt Ziel betrunkener Rednecks; er wird angeschossen und der junge schwarze Constable Silas Jones mit den lästigen Ermittlungen betraut – eine gemeinsame Vergangenheit und ein dunkles Geheimnis verbinden ihn mit Larry. Schon Faulkner wusste, dass sich die Vergangenheit nicht beerdigen lässt, und in Franklins Südstaaten-Roman um Freundschaft, Verrat und Alltagsrassismus brechen alte Wunden auf und offenbaren, dass man, getrieben von Furcht und Feigheit, schlimme Fehler begehen kann.
