A Buck Schatz Mystery
Once, Detective Buck Schatz patrolled the city of Memphis. But he's been retired for decades. Now he's frail and demented. The future looks short and bleak. But Buck's past is under attack as well. After 35 years on death row, convicted serial killer Chester March finally has an execution date. Chester is the oldest condemned man in the United States, and his case has attracted the attention of NPR producer Carlos Watkins, who believes Chester's confession was coerced. Chester's conviction is the capstone on Buck's storied career, and, to save Chester's life, Watkins is prepared to tear down Buck's reputation and legacy.
