During the 1960s, amid a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and the emergence of the civil rights movement, Pam Bingemann attended Florida State University, where she began writing. After college, her career path turned to real estate, and her creative writing skills focused on marketing and multimedia advertising. She spent most of her life living and working along the pristine beaches of Northeast Florida. In 2010 she retired to her country retreat in Southwest Georgia and completed her first novel, Common Justice, an intriguing tale of impoverished lives torn apart by racism in the 1960s segregated South.
Returning to his hometown in the 1960s segregated South, decorated war veteran Ezekiel Brown learns that his innocent, simpleminded brother Luke has been brutally tortured and lynched after being wrongfully accused of the rape and murder of a local white girl. When the town, gripped in the clutches of a racially charged Ku Klux Klan, turns a blind eye, Ezekiel must track down the killers himself. Plagued by the demons of a war-ravaged mind, he seizes simple but deadly elements at hand to force them to face the excruciating horror of common justice, accelerating to a shockingly unpredictable conclusion.
“Just got back from Jacksonville yesterday and had a chance to read everything. WOW! You did a great job of taking the rough edges off the manuscript and smoothing it out. Thank you so much. It is a much better read now. I started making notes of the places you clarified/rearranged wording, but there were so many I finally gave up. Be assured, though, I studied them carefully and learned from each one.”
