The Boys On The Tracks
Two Arkansas teenagers are run over by a train.
The state medical examiner rules they smoked themselves into “a marijuana-induced stupor” before lying down, side by side on the tracks. He rules the deaths accidental. Case closed. Except that when the parents of one get the bodies exhumed, new autopsies point to murder.
That launches the mom of one of the boys on a journey that will lead her into a dark world of drugs and political corruption.
In 2001, after this book’s release, a U.S. court of appeals wrote: “The record in this case reads like a John Grisham novel.”
Unfortunately, this story is not fiction.
