Nothing is sacred and no woman is safe. Grand Dragon D.C. Stephenson takes control of an entire state on a platform of anti-immigration and Protestant moral values. He is brought down only when he is convicted of murder after a brutal rape results in the death of one of his girlfriends. This tale of demagoguery, misogyny, and xenophobia is inspired by true events. Although it is set in the 1920’s, it resonates with echoes of today’s society and politics.
