Summary
Neal practiced criminal law in West Texas for forty years--20 as a prosecutor and 20 as a defense attorney--and is the author of two other books on law-related topics and West Texas history. His latest work tells the story of a long-standing feud between two Texas families that began with a torrid sex scandal in the early 20th century, triggering a series of murders and related court cases. A "taboo of silence" regarding the feud lasted until 1985 when descendents of the Sneed and Boyce families finally shook hands to end the ill feelings. Drawing on his vast experience in criminal law, Neal is able to create an insightful account of both the human and legal aspects of the Boyce-Sneed feud, for scholars and general readers interested in Texas/American history and criminal law.
