A Slice of Reparations

by Margie Walker

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
On the 4th of July, offspring of the founding fathers of Hudson Valley, Texas are discovered murdered, the word "Reparations" left by their mutilated bodies. Marcia Chenault-McKissick, in town nursing an emotional wound, is charged with finding the killer before more violence erupts as both the white and black communities are stirred in anger, seasoned by a taste for revenge.
Justice or Revenge? Haunted by the suspicion of killing her husband, Marcia Chenault-McKissack awakens from an emotional hibernation and is catapulted into a sphere of work she once believed over for her. Having returned to her East Texas hometown of Hudson Valley, the former Houston-Harris County crime scene technician becomes intricately involved in solving the murders of the founding fathers’ offspring, the town’s most influential citizens. Six murders, including one death that throws off the profile with her presence, while another who should be present is missing. Marcia prefers to believe Katherine Heldman is a live captive, rather than a murder victim or even a suspect as she pursues a revenge-seeking killer. Upon launching an investigation into the murders, mass graves containing dozens of skeletal remains and one fairly fresh body are unearthed. It becomes painstakingly apparent that they are pivotal to the recent murders, propelling Marcia into the historical relationship between Hudson Valley’s blacks and whites. How the past affects the present is Marcia’s quandary. Learning that the history of Hudson Valley is more abhorrent than she once believed brings her full circle to the present day murders that leave not only a trail of killings along the way, but a killer that is hard to believe in A Slice of Reparations.
