He returns home to Alabama to try to write a memoir about his time in the cultural whirlwind, but the words fail to come.The surprise return of his Vietnam veteran brother in the spring of 1967 gives Willie a chance to drive a load of smuggled guns to the Motor City – and make enough money to jump-start his stalled dream of writing his movement memoir.

And Willie is his prime suspect.Bill Morriss rich and thrilling new novel sets Doyles hunt amid the history of one of Americas most tortured and fascinating cities, as Doyle and Willie struggle with Detroits deep racial divide, with revenge and forgiveness – and with the realization that justice is rarely attainable, and rarely just.
