  • Résumé

George Wythe was Thomas Jefferson's mentor and friend, chief justice of the Virginia Supreme Court - and a victim of lethal poisoning. His murder and the trial of his nephew for the killing caused a sensation. This title probes the darker secrets of Richmond, Virginia, and the period to offer a look at early American society.
