Be careful what you wish for.


Attorney Willie Shorter wishes he could be Georgia’s youngest governor.


Laine Becker wishes she could escape a life of drudgery working at Claxton Mill.


The Over-the-Hill Boys Club wishes they were back in the game.


But fulfilling those wishes comes at a price higher than they expected to pay.


Shorter’s Way is, of course, Willie’s story, but it is also the story of Atlanta and a forgotten way of life in the rural south.

Click on the Shorter's Way cover to read chapters one and two.
I could taste the cotton lint, red dust, and mendacity. A smooth blend of Atlanta society, dirt-poor mill hands, and backroom political chicanery. The South, politics, murder, and money. Sign me up!        Jerry Matheny
