In his true crime thriller THE ROPE: A True Story of Murder, Heroism, and the Dawn of the NAACP, Alex Tresniowski combines two story strands: the life of activist, journalist, and crusader Ida B. Wells, an icon of the Civil Rights movement, and the investigation of the brutal murder, in 1910 in Asbury Park, NJ, of 10-year-old Marie Smith.
“In this riveting true story, Alex Tresniowski tells the intertwined stories of a crusading reporter, an innovative detective, and a man unjustly imprisoned…You’ll read this in a night, I promise!” —Molly Oditz, Lit Hub’s Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2021
