Read full description of the books:
Wilton Cooper is at a drive-in movie when he notices the ugly white boy walk into the projection booth. Seconds later a gun goes off, perfectly timed to coincide with the movie?s noisy climax. When the boy struts coolly out, blood sprayed on the front of his cheap print shirt, Cooper knows he?s found his partner. King Suckerman weaves the blaxploitation films, the drug deals, the soul music and the racial tensions that defined the ?70?s into a story of natural-born killers and two men who risk everything to bring them down. This is the second novel in the DC Quartet, the most explosive contribution to crime fiction since Ellroy?s LA Quartet.
