In 2010, deep in Mississippi, a notorious white supremacist named Richard Barrett was brutally murdered by a young black man, Vincent McGee.

At first the murder was accepted as a twist on old Deep South race crimes. But new revelations began to come to light: was it really a dispute over money? Or, more intriguingly, over sex?

This book is an innovative true-crime story as John Safran paints an engrossing, revealing portrait of race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South.
