The Bishop's PawnBook - 2018
Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone must reckon with the truth of what really happened in Memphis on April 4, 1968. It all turns on an incident from eighteen years ago, when Malone, as a young Navy lawyer, is trying hard not to live up to his burgeoning reputation as a maverick. When Stephanie Nelle, a high-level Justice Department lawyer, seeks his help to investigate a delicate situation involving a stolen rare coin and a rogue FBI faction, he jumps at the opportunity. But he soon discovers that two opposing forces--the Justice Department and the FBI--are at war over a cadre of secret files containing explosive revelations about what really happened on that fateful April day. The information could ruin innocent lives and even threaten the legacy of the civil rights movement's greatest martyr. Malone, caught in the midst of this clash, ultimately discovers a truth more shocking than anyone could have imagined.
