Summer, 1952. Twenty powerful men gather in secret and devise a plot to manipulate the President of the United States.

Soon after, writer Eddie Wesley leaves a party hosted by affluent and influential members of black society, and discovers a body. The murdered man had an unusual gold cross gripped between his hands and Eddie is determined to find out why he was killed and what the cross signifies.

Review:

"A brilliant literary thriller, packed with insight, intelligence and ideas...Eye-opening and absorbing: I really couldn't put it down" ( Literary Review)

"Carter employs conspiratorial and paranoid plotting to highlight the reality of American political division ...skilled at injecting pace and tension...a historical thriller that efficiently delivers both thrills and history, especially in the still under-developed chronicles of black America" (Mark Lawson Guardian)

"Intricate plotting... richly involving" ( Independent)

"Crisp and enthralling...an ambitious novel...that covers the social, political and cultural changes in post-war America from the point of view of the black elite" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Insights into a realm little known in the UK" ( The Times)

Review:

`crisp and enthralling'
