The Trees by Percival Everett 308 pages

Something awful is happening in Money, Mississippi. White bigots are being brutally murdered, and at the scene of the crimes is a dead Black man. When the dead Black man keeps disappearing, Jim Davis and Ed Morgan are brought in from The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation to help solve the homicides. Soon these mysterious types of killings are being duplicated all over the country.

With a deft touch of black humor, Everett describes the issues of racism, lynching and revenge. His novel is also a good page-turner mystery. The Trees was a great way to bring in 2022.
