A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter formerly with The New York Times, Rick Bragg hit the bestseller charts with his first book, All Over but the Shoutin', his account of breaking free from the poverty of his youth and finding success at the pinnacle of American journalism.


I chose to make [Elvis Cole] a private investigator because the private investigator is outside of the system. He has none of the power of even a simple patrol officer.
