Deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960’s South Florida, investigative reporter Ward Jansen and his partner Yardley Acheman chase a sensational, career-making story. With the help of Ward’s younger brother Jack and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless , the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff. Based on the provocative bestselling novel by Pete Dexter, The Paperboy peels back a sleepy small town’s decades-old facade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou.
