I read THE ARC OF JUSTICE several years ago. Then I saw the author when the libraries in my area chose that book for their Everyone's Reading program

I grew up on Garland Avenue in Detroit, just a few houses away from the Sweet residence. I wasn't born till 1942, but my father and grandparents were living on Garland in 1925 at the time of the murder. They knew Leon Breiner, the man who was killed. I so regret not having asked more questions while my family members were still alive. It's quite a piece of Detroit history, although a shameful one. I have three more books about the murder and subsequent trial, but Arc of Justice is far and away the best.

The author, Kevin Boyle, is a very nice man. He teaches at Ohio State University and is from Detroit, himself.
