A Conspiracy of Silence: The Murder of Solicitor Floyd Hoard

Some brief overview of book

This book is an eye-opening look at corruption in a small Georgia county in the 1950s and '60s. Buffington, a longtime journalist and native of Jackson County, lays out in detail how the citizens in that area looked the other way for decades while their public officials and law enforcement officers became criminals, as they failed to prosecute and even helped bootleggers and murderers. It finally came to a head when a bootlegger ordered the death by dynamite of the county solicitor who was on his trail.

It's not exactly a novelistic book - Buffington writes like a police reporter, which isn't a bad thing, but may not be the style you were hoping for - and it's filled with details and asides that may be of interest only to those of us who've lived for years in Northeast Georgia. But I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a cautionary tale about what happens when citizens stop fulfilling their part of democracy's contract - holding public officials accountable.
