Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2018


Attica Locke

Bluebird, Bluebird

Published by: Serpent's Tail

This thrillingly written examination of racial tensions in the American South is evocative and provocative. The personal jeopardy of the protagonist – a black cop in a white world where it may be dangerous to find the killer – is subtly interwoven with America’s racial fault lines past and present. If the distinction between ‘crime’ and ‘literary’ fiction is ever killed off, Locke will be a prime suspect.
