With Extreme Prejudice

One year after his wife dies in a car accident, film critic Mike Barnett discovers his house ransacked in an apparent robbery. However, only his wife's private files have been stolen. Mike then finds himself pulled into a seedy world of local government corruption when he starts to believe that his wife's death was no accident. A captivating legal thriller about greed, graft, and convoluted schemes, a man's search for truth to reconcile the loss of a loving marriage uncovers deeper trauma in the beauty of New Orleans.

"Fredrick Barton's novel appears to be a whodunit, but, to his credit, he's just as interested in the why of things. He takes on tough topics—race relations in a decaying city, the legacy of miscegenation in the South, white liberal guily." -The Washington Post "Honestly written and well-conceived, this is a book that supplies pleasure on a number of levels. -Publisher's Weekly "A superior, savvy tangle of greed, graft, and sudden violence with a pervasive subtext of the struggle between unconscious bias and better instincts." - The Los Angeles Times "Terrific in every sense" -The New York Daily News
