Descripción

Small 4to. Burgundy cloth, pictorial dust jacket. 307pp. Fine/near fine. A tight and attractive first edition of this suspense novel set (coincidentally) in Hackman's home state of Illinois at about (coincidentally!) the year of his birth and featuring much Chicago and Midwest content. On the title page, Hackman signs large and bold in black fineline; below Hackman's signature, Lenihan signs too, adding "to Charlie" at the top of the page. A lovely copy.

Sinopsis:

In their second novel, Gene Hackman and Daniel Lenihan bring to life the harsh plains and smouldering courtrooms of the Midwest: the small town of Vermilion, Illinois, on the brink of the Great Depression. Boyd Calvin is a troubled World War I veteran on the run from the law, suspected of murdering his estranged wife and her lover. Only a female reporter for the Chicago Tribune and the head of a sanitarium for veterans are not convinced of Boyd's guilt. Boyd joins forces with another wrongly accused man, an African-American, and the two begin to face their shadowed pasts while fighting against the odds of justice.

From the Back Cover:

Capturing perfectly the Depression era Midwest in which author and Oscar award-winning actor Gene Hackman was raised, Justice for None is a suspenseful novel filled with twists and turns and a vivid cast of characters whose lives intersect in unexpected ways...

AN INNOCENT MAN...
The year is 1929, just before the Depression. Vermilion, Illinois is a prosperous small town where
World War I veteran Boyd Calvin lives. Still haunted by his experiences in the war, Boyd struggles to find a place for himself. He drives a trolley and lives hand-to-mouth in a flophouse. But when Boyd stumbles upon the scene of his wife's brutal killing, he loses his nerve and runs, only to be captured and jailed for murder...

A DARING ESCAPE...
In prison, he meets and befriends George, a black convict accused of raping a white woman. Narrowly escaping a crowd's attempt to lynch them, the men flee for their lives, hiding together before making their way to the anonymity of Chicago and day labor paid in cash. But Boyd soon discovers the fugitive's underworld is not for him and decides to return to Vermilion and surrender to his fate.

THE BATTLE OF HIS LIFE...
What he doesn't expect to find is a small group of supporters who believe in his innocence and convince Boyd to fight for the justice that has eluded him. As the country stumbles toward collapse, a dramatic trial unfolds as a man's fate hangs in the balance...

"Interesting plot twists, well-drawn characters (George is superb), and a rich, detailed, evocation of rural America in the late 1920s."
--Library Journal

"Suspenseful...an exciting yarn."
--Booklist
