TIME OF DEATH gives the background story that became UNTIL PROVEN.
TIME OF DEATH is nonfiction about a murder that happened in Chapel Hill on Christmas Eve, 1963. My father was a friend to the man who was falsely accused, tried and convicted--and later exonerated. I was 12 when the murder occurred and 14 when the innocent man was finally acquitted. The case and the trials introduced me to a number of difficult questions about my hometown and the justice system. I explored those questions in the novel, UNTIL PROVEN, and issued TIME OF DEATH as a companion piece.
Because it is less than book length, TIME OF DEATH is available as an ebook only, through all of online ebook sellers.
