From a former Maryland attorney comes the true crime story of accused murderer Orphan Jones-a case mired in the racism and politics of 1930s America. Euel Lee, alias Orphan Jones, was an African American accused of murdering his white employer and family over a single dollar. The tumultuous events and cast of characters surrounding the racially charged crime garnered national media attention and changed the course of Maryland history.

The Euel Lee case as explored by Joe Moore is more than good, readable, local history.

But this fascinating true-crime story of an actual "Murder on Maryland's Eastern Shore" is unique in its presentment of the facts of the case and its rich, authoritative description of rural Maryland life during the Depression.

Murder on Maryland's Eastern Shore, by former Worcester County, Maryland State's Attorney Joseph E. Moore, explores the racially charged case of Euel Lee, alias Orphan Jones, an African American worker accused of murdering his white employer and family. Moore reconstructs the crime and ensuing trial of Orphan Jones against the backdrop of Jim Crow politics, which was very much a part of America in the 1930s. Moore provides accurate detail, local color and an enlightening empathy with all the participants in the saga of Euel Lee. He has sought out and mastered the available evidence, even to the extent of locating the two confessions of the convicted murderer. The Euel Lee case as explored by Joe Moore is more than good, readable, local history. It is about the stresses and strains in American society in the Depression, from the radicalism of a young Communist lawyer to the conscious efforts of a rural community to contain violence, confront or at least deal with their prejudices and see that justice was served for a senseless murder in their midst. Moore sets a high standard of factual accountability and entertaining narrative based upon oral history and archival research. General readers and scholars alike will not be disappointed.

This book is morally compelling, historically fascinating and politically challenging for today's context. It is well-written and even with legal briefs quoted at length, it is a page-turner. As one living on the Shore, this book has helped me connect the dots and see the long shadow of the Easter Shore's racist history on life today in our smaller cities and towns. Thank you, Joseph Moore.

I have just started reading this book. It is full of history...some I was aware of and some I was not. I am like reading the history but the situation saddens me.

Anyone interested in Civil Rights history or the south (Maryland was a slave state.) will find here the usually hidden story of the 1930s.

Great as expected!!!!

Here is a slice of judicial and racial history of the Eastern Shore of Maryland that echoes what James Michener did so astonishing well with first hand and almost autobiographical research. That Mr Moore is a lawyer and life long resident of the Eastern Shore makes him uniquely qualified to write this history. One need not be a Maryland judge or lawyer to appreciate Moore's spot-on analysis of the way the criminal justice system works. Nor must one be subjected to pervasive racial prejudice, a member of the communist party or have lived on the Eastern Shore to understand the events, culture and politics that Moore describes. All that is required is to read the book and you will be transported to a time in the 30's when lynch mobs went unpunished, blacks were excluded from juries and Jewish communists seemed to be the only ones who cared.
