New mystery novel

Award-winning author Lawrence Thackston will present his new mystery-thriller at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

Set in the South Carolina Lowcountry, Carolina Cruel is a Southern tale of race, politics, crime, and corruption in which two reporters will make startling connections between an executed mass murderer, the fallout from the 1968 Orangeburg Massacre and the hanging of one of the state’s most prominent citizens. And in their search for answers, they will discover a cruelty so devastating; it will change countless lives forever.

Thackston, author of Tidal Pools, and The Devil’s Courthouse, once again, brings his unique brand of page-turning suspense to the world of crime fiction.
