Summary
"When the teenage daughter of a powerful Washington, D.C., judge is found dead, three local black kids are arrested for her murder--but reporter Sully Carter suspects there's more to the case. From the city's grittiest backstreets to the elegant halls of power, wry yet wounded Sully pursues a string of cold cases, all the while fighting against pressure from government officials, police, suspicious locals, and his own bosses at the newspaper. Based on the real-life 1990s Princeton Place murders"--

Summary
In this highly acclaimed debut novel, former war reporter Sully Carter now covers the crime beat in Washington, D.C. When the 15-year-old white daughter of a powerful judge is murdered, the cops quickly arrest three young black men who'd been bothering the girl. When Carter realizes that other nearby murders indicate a serial killer is at work, no one -- not his editors or the cops -- listen. Inspired by the real-life 1990s Princeton Place murders, The Ways of the Dead has pitch-perfect dialogue and a vibrantly described setting. Fans of Elmore Leonard may recognize award-winning Washington Post journalist Neely Tucker's name; Leonard, a friend, used it in his book Cuba Libre. -- Description by Dawn Towery
