Reviewed on Richard & Judy on Wednesday 27 May 2009. A complex and rewarding political thriller. Spanning 1952 – 1974 the novel has a brilliant perspective on being a black American during these tumultuous years. The life of Eddie, a self centered up and coming black author, is changed forever with the disappearance of his politically active sister. Layer upon layer of intrigue surround this and its links to a mysterious group called the twenty. Not a novel you can dip in an out of but perfect to be savoured at length on holiday.
