General Note:
"On a cold November night in 1936, the body of a beautiful businesswoman Verna Garr Taylor is found in a ditch along a lonely highway in rural Kentucky. Verna has been shot through the heart, and her fiance', former lieutenant governor and brigadier general Henry Denhardt insists she committed suicide. But the clues left behind point to murder, and General Denhardt quickly becomes the target of investigators. The general's sensational murder trial draws reporters from all over the country tot he small Kentucky community. The case is featured in the New York Times, the London Herald, Newsweek, Time, Life, and other national and international publications. When the trial ends in a hung jury, Kentuckians, including Verna's three angry and grieving brothers wait in grim anticipation for the general to be tried again." -- Back cover.
