After You've Heard the Evidence, Will You Vote to Set the Killer Free?Pearl, a stunning flapper in the Roaring Twenties, has danced for Rudolph Valentino, and enjoys the company of any man she chooses--until she decides to carry on an affair with Morgan, a married rural man with two children. Morgan's wife, Ina, disguised in borrowed clothing, guns Pearl down when she finds her on a midnight train with her arms around Morgan. The next day, Pearl's body is placed on public display for a town of strangers, and her killer is applauded in the streets by hundreds of country women. A "dream team" of defense attorneys is hired, and the stage is set for a sensational jazz age clash between two distinct views of a woman's role in modern society--that of the "virtuous" rural mother dressed in gingham and the "scarlet woman" from the city who would deny a mother and her babies the necessities of life. Should death ever be the price for adultery? That is the question the jury--and readers--are faced with in THE UNWRITTEN LAW. Gripping, thought-provoking, and engaging--the reader of The Unwritten Law becomes a participant in one of the most morally divisive murder trials in American history!  Scroll up and place a copy in your cart right now.
