Rate this:
When Dr. Elwin Carter is confronted in his Watts clinic by two boys terrified by the brutal murder of their friend, his investigations lead him far beyond the usual suspicions of drugs and gang violence to an apocalyptic discovery of just how far the government will go to keep the lid on the country's riot-torn cities. Combining action and suspense with political insight, this 1976 novel presents a frighteningly prophetic and disturbing picture of the subterranean war between the races in America."A gripping and terrifying novel." --Chicago Bulletin"Timely, politically charged and necessary reading. Just the kind of book that will knock us out of our complacent '70s attitude about black folks and justice." --Black Scholar
