Overview

A father's family outing to a Detroit Lions football game becomes the biggest nightmare of his life. A Detroit businessman's first-class flight to Tokyo takes an unexpected turn when he's forced to sit beside the corpse of a woman who passed away in mid-flight. An obese alcoholic formulates a theory on dogs and race after watching footage of Detroit Police officers beating Malice Green to death in 1992. An Iraqi War veteran returns to Detroit and is offered a unique opportunity to avenge the violent death of his younger sister.

Cops, teachers, private investigators, wealthy business owners, and blue-collar family men, the characters in Ryan Potter's "Welcome to Detroit: Ten Years - Ten Stories (2002-2012)" propel themselves into a troubled city that refuses to give up. These stories have it all-crime, suspense, humor, drama-and take place in a version of the Motor City fueled with both promise and despair.
