The Edgar Award-winning mystery that launched the career of bestselling novelist Stuart Woods. In the bitter winter of 1920, the first body is found in Delano, Georgia; the naked corpse of an unidentified teenager. There is no direct evidence of murder, but the body bears marks of what seems to be a ritual beating. The investigation falls to Will Henry Lee, a failed cotton farmer newly appointed as Delano's first chief of police. Lee's obsession with the crime begins a story that weaves through the decades, following the life of a small southern town and the role of three police chiefs in unraveling the crime. Chiefs is the best kind of thriller, where the investigation plays out against the drama beneath the surface of a seemingly placid community, seething with the pressures of race, love, hate, and; always; political power, extending from the town fathers all the way to Washington, DC. Includes a new foreword by the author on the twenty-fifth anniversary of its publication.

The novel traces the lives, customs and social mores of people, rich and poor, over a time spanning almost a hundred years. Madhava, a feudal strong man, is ruthless, willful and whimsical as he rules over the House of Kemmadi and its vast estate. Space around him seems to warp like his mind, and the three women, Laxmi, Para and Kamali struggle to live in this space, but not without their happy moments of domestic life and abiding bonds they make. Seetharama is coerced, cajoled and bullied by his older brother, Madhava, into abject submission while his happy marriage to Kamali totters. Ananthayya, Madhava's uncle and trusted man, is jovial and helpful, takes his life as it comes with no undue concern for scruples and morals. This story is as much of the people as of the changing times they live in, and becomes very much so as Madhava stands up for feudalism in its dying days, while the forces unleashed by communist ideology are closing in on him and what he represents.

Suzanne, a poet, lives in a Maine beach house awaiting the birth of a child she will call Sparrow. Claudia, who weds a farmer during college, plans to raise three strong sons. Elizabeth and her husband marry, organize protests, and try to rear two children with their hippie values. By 1985, things have changed: Suzanne, now with an MBA, calls Sparrow "Susan."
