Overview

Two childhood friends, one black, one white, whose lives intertwined in segregated East Texas return to Longview when Harley Groves, the man credited with making them the successful men they became, is murdered.

An enjoyable book! It reads well and the characters are believable. It also has a nice twist at the end which I love. I would definitely read future books from this author.

This is a must read!! Could not put down untill finished. Used for our book club for the month of May,2012. Everyone in Ladies of 142nd Book Club just raved about his well told story with an unexpected ending. D.J.

Our neighborhood book club read and discussed and thoroughly enjoyed. Held our interest. Character development and life situations suggested a 'true story'. Multiple social issues introduced through the circumstances in the life of the main character, Harley Groves. A first time author who writes like he has been writing for years.

Loved the characters and the story itself. Kept my interest and would certainly make a good movie! Looking forward to the next book with Juliana heading up another investigation.
