A bomb set outside an African American church explodes on a Sunday morning, killing four young girls … and changing the world. Thirty-seven years later, the FBI reopens the case, though the only person convicted won’t talk; key witnesses have died; and there is little hope of finding evidence on the last two suspects.
Last Chance for Justice is the story of that investigation, told from the perspective of police detective Ben Herren and FBI Special Agent Bill Fleming, whose initially chilly relationship evolves into a close partnership. For over a year they analyze in secret the thousands of documents in FBI files on the bombing and the Ku Klux Klan before conducting their first interview. That interview—with Klansman Bobby Frank Cherry—breaks open the case … but not in the way they expected. With tenacity, humor, luck, and dedication, they encounter the worst and best in human nature on their journey to find justice.
