Sinopsis:

During the 1920's, the Ku Klux Klan was a national power, active in all 48 states, with 3 million members. Dan Moody obtained the first convictions and prison sentences against the 1920's version of the KKK. He then rallied public opinion against the Klan in a race for state attorney general. Moody defeated the Klan candidate in a run-off election. The New York Times would later declare Moody's victory "the death-knell of Klan domination" in Texas. As attorney general, Moody fought the corruption of the Ferguson administration. He was able to return $1 million in cash and securities to the state treasury that was the product of a phony road-building scam. At age 33, Moody was elected Texas' youngest governor. In his later career, he was involved in the litigation involving LBJ's disputed 1948 Senate race.

About the Author:

Ken Anderson, a lawyer and former district attorney, has written seven previous books. He has been doing research, writing and speaking about Moody for the past 12 years. His previous books include a young adult's biography, "You Can't Do That, Dan Moody!" which was released in 1998. He has also co-written a play by the same name which is performed periodically in the same courtroom, in the same courthouse as the 1923 Klan trials. His previous TV appearances about Moody include C-SPAN's "Book-TV." As district attorney, Anderson has been quoted in most of the nation's newspapers and has appeared on nationwide TV numerous times including appearances on ABC's "20/20" (twice); NBC's "Today" and Fox's "America's Most Wanted."
