In 1951 an aristocrat accused five nonwhite men of gang rape. When the trial ended in a hung jury, her mother arranged for one of the suspects to be murdered. The ensuing trial, Clarence Darrow's last, exposed the shocking realities of a Hawaiian "paradise."
From the Publisher:
Traces the racially charged rape, kidnapping, and murder trials that kindled social and political transformations in 1930s Hawaii, recounting how the wife of a naval officer in Honolulu accused six islanders of gang rape and how her mother, infuriated by the case's subsequent hung jury, arranged the murder of one of the suspects.In 1931 HawaiÂ'i, Thalia Massie, the aristocratic wife of a naval officer, accused five nonwhite men of gang rape. When the trial ended in a hung jury, ThaliaÂ's mother arranged for one of the suspects to be murderedÂ?an act sanctioned by sympathetic whites as an Â?honor killing.Â? The ensuing murder trial, Clarence DarrowÂ's last, enthralled the nation and exposed the shocking realities of a Hawaiian Â?paradise.Â? This is the riveting story behind one of the pivotal scandals of American history.
