The rampant police corruption in the town of Jennings is shocking and terrifying and downright evil. It's easy to forget that places like Jennings are everywhere with deep rooted drug use and prostitution and that despite national attention 8 murders of downtrodden women can be blatantly left unsolved. Brown offers much eager speculation in this supremely complicated true crime book.
