Summary
"Blood in the Soil is the first book about the investigation into the shooting of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt and his country attorney in Gwinnett County, Georgia, in 1978. But this book is not primarily about Larry Flynt, or even his shooter (the serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin) ... This true account is told alternately from the perspective of Detective J. Michael Cowart and by following Franklin's life from childhood through his execution."
