Looking for a book I've read possibly published in the last 2-3 years. It is set in a small southern town possibly GA or MS. It centers on the only black police officer and his white half brother who was accused of a murder in the past but was exonerated. Later in years new evidence surfaces which brings up a great many issues and memories. The white brother runs a car repair shop? and because of his past murder accusation the whole town tends to shun him. I believe the murder involved a young girl that the white brother took to the prom and after a fight? he claims to have dropped her off down the road from her house but she never returned home. I also believe the black brother and the girl where involved. A rifle figures into the plot as well and a car trip with the two brothers, their father and a coat. The brothers were not aware of their relation until the end of the book? I have drew a complete blank on the name and author. Believe it or not this whole search started over mobile chicken coops which were mentioned in the book (owned by the white brother).
