Eyewitness Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Eyewitness

A man is shot to death by a shadowy figure rising from the smoldering bushes lining the walkway to Beulah Baptist Church in a quiet, Southern town.   When police get information linking the fire at the church to other recent arsons, they begin searching for the serial arsonist and murderer. After receiving two contradictory descriptions of the shooter from eyewitnesses; one witness describing a white perpetrator and one a black, the town and the investigation are divided along the color line.
