Description
"Colin Douglas, a 63-year-old true crime writer, witnesses the execution of his latest subject, which leaves him 'feeling hollow, with a copper taste in my mouth.' The upsetting experience triggers a recurrent nightmare about a traumatic incident that occurred in 1959, when he was a boy growing up in Baton Rouge. A teacher at his school was murdered in a cemetery near a Mississippi River levee and an abandoned slave plantation. In his nightmare, he sinks into the mud of a borrow pit and when his nocturnal dread begins to affect his waking life, he decides to leave Colorado and return to Baton Rouge to find out what really happened that night."--P.4 of cover.
