Furious Hours

Murder, Fraud, and
The Last Trial of Harper Lee

The New York Times Bestseller

“A triumph on every level. One of the losses to literature is that Harper Lee never found a way to tell a gothic true-crime story she’d spent years researching. Casey Cep has excavated this mesmerizing story and tells it with grace and insight and a fierce fidelity to the truth.”
–David Grann,
best-selling author of Killers of the Flower Moon
“Superbly written…the sort of story that even Lee would have been proud to write.”
–Michael Lewis,
The New York Times Book Review
“A marvel…gives us the fullest story yet of Lee’s post-Mockingbird life.”
“Enthralling…Cep delivers edge-of-your-seat courtroom drama while brilliantly reinventing Southern Gothic.”
–O Magazine
“Compelling…If ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ was one of your favorite books growing up, you should add ‘Furious Hours’ to your reading list today.”
–Southern Living
