Simmering racial tension in Atlanta and the murder of an eminent black daily newspaper editor, lie at the heart of this extraordinarily riveting depiction of a time and society. Populated by well-drawn characters, wonderful pace, evocation of place and superb writing – all in all a terrific thought-provoking third instalment in the Darktown series.
