Book - 1992
Rate this:
In 1933, the town of San Jose was shaken by the kidnapping--and subsequent murder--of the son of a local department store owner. After the culprits were apprehended, a band of angry vigilantes stormed the jail and lynched them--an act the governor later hailed as a fine lesson. A chilling tale of fear and fury in a small-town paradise turned inferno. Photographs.
