    Sinopse

    When attorney John Jay Cornelison severely beat Kentucky Superior Court judge Richard Reid in public on April 16, 1884, for allegedly injuring his honor, the event became front-page news. Would Reid react as a Christian gentleman, a man of the law, and let the legal system take its course, or would he follow the manly dictates of the code of honor and challenge his assailant? James C. Klotter crafts a detective story, using historical, medical, legal, and psychological clues to piece together answers to the tragedy that followed. “This book is a gem. . . . Klotter’s astute organization and gripping narrative add to the book’s appeal. . . . [He] has written a fascinating book that will be of interest to a wide audience.” —American Historical Review “A moving story well told, it does force the reader to reflect on our own era and consider whether we value leaders who respect the rule of law or those who believe that honor demands swift and bloody vengeance no matter the costs.” —Ohio Valley History “A rich and compelling work that offers fresh insights into the tense interplay among religion, law, and honor in the American South.” —Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
