Stepping into the 1946 hotbed of Revere, Mississippi, New York NAACP lawyer, Regina, investigates the murder of a black World War II hero, Joe Howard Wilson, who courageously survived everything but his hometown. After a grand jury deems his death "an unfortunate accident," eccentric author of The Secret of Magic, M.P. Calhoun, calls upon Thurgood Marshall for support to honor her lifelong employee and friend, Joe's father. Stories swirl from Calhoun's book, more truth than fiction, woven in and out of the lives of beloved, tragic characters!
