Overview

Street-smart and straightforward police chief Cuddy Mangum and his refined homicide detective Justin Savile V are determined to keep their town's cultural, political and racial divisions stable...even peaceful. But when a young black activist is murdered while in the process of fighting for his brother's freedom from death row, the lines keeping Hillston, North Carolina, in balance start to crumble.

Thrust into a dirty political campaign and torn between his morals and his love for the wealthy and beautiful wife of an up-and-coming politician, Cuddy must uncover the secrets that lie in his own backyard.

From high-powered and elegant country club ballrooms to dark and dangerous bar room corners, Malone weaves a mystery of plot and place where the difference between good and evil and right and wrong sometimes become indistinct.

In Time's Witness, Michael Malone returns to North Carolina and the quiet town of Hillston, the setting of his internationally acclaimed novel Uncivil Seasons. There, Police Chief Cuddy Mangum and his blue-bloodied lieutenant Justin Savile V are up against a new challenge--of life and death.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This ``leisurely, winning chronicle'' of two murder investigations and multilayered injustice in a Southern town features a large cast of sharply drawn characters. According to PW , Malone's ``intriguing plot'' is saved from apparent aimlessness by police chief ``Cuddy'' Mangum, ``as engaging a tour guide through this peripatetic narrative as anyone could ask.''

    Super!

    This is one of the most chilling books I have ever read about the death penalty and its links to class and race, especially in the South. Malone is great writer. The novel moves very quickly through a complicated plot. The characters are wonderful. Cuddy is one of those police chiefs we wish existed everywhere: thoughtful, balanced, and fair. The other characters, especially Isaac Rosethorn and Justin Saville, are equally fascinating. Malone really knows and understands the complexity of the South.
