Editor's Choice #8 Title

Officer Denny Rakestra and ""Negro Officers"" Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith have their hands full in an overcrowded and rapidly changing Atlanta. It's 1950 and racial tensions are simmering. Then Rake's brother-in-law launches a scheme to rally the Ku Klux Klan to ""save"" their neighborhood, forcing Rake to choose his loyalty - family or the law.


Customer Reviews

Mullen effectively uses the police procedural format to shine a light on the daily indignities and violence blacks suffered in the pre-civil rights South, while delivering a plot that never lets up on suspense.
