Description
In the tense summer before Detroit's 1967 race riots, a former cop faces off against some of the city's most dangerous forces Rage simmers beneath the tranquil surface of 1960s Detroit. As the auto industry enjoys its last moments of prosperity, widespread discrimination infuriates the city's black middle class. One of the most destructive riots of the twentieth century is around the corner, and Rick Amery is going to be right in the middle. A longtime cop forced out of the department on trumped-up graft charges, Amery shares Detroit's obsession with muscle cars. It was the temptation of a white '64 Thunderbird that cost him his badge, and it is for the sake of General Motors that he takes his first job as a private investigator, digging up dirt on a consumer advocate who calls GM cars death traps. Amery must work quickly, for no hot rod on Earth is fast enough to outrun the trouble that's gaining on the Motor City. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
