Overview

Inspired by an actual event, the 1973 Howard Johnson sniper incident in New Orleans, SNIPER ON THE ROOF is a grittily realistic account of racial tension, romance and political intrigue that explores the inner workings of crime families, the police force, and the early Black Power movement in Louisiana and abroad.

Police Captain Salvatore "Rock" Rocco’s life has become an alcoholic nightmare because he believes he caused the death of his black partner, Detective Joe Johnson, during the defining moments of the civil rights movement in New Orleans, sixteen years earlier. When his dying boss arrives at a Mafia Don’s funeral and hands the police captain a battered shoebox containing evidence that Johnson is still alive, Rocco is compelled to return to that traumatic event so many years ago. He is forced to confront his own nightmares and the Roman Catholic Church in order to find resolution to the guilt and anguish he has suffered.
