In 1921 Tulsa, a white woman and a black man get on an elevator. The woman screams, and suddenly the man is on the streets - barely ahead of a lynch mob gathering behind him. Accused of rape, aspiring magician Joe is on the run for a crime he didn't commit - and the woman whose scream implicated Joe must search for the courage to exonerate him.

"Rhodes' exciting and moving novel takes off at a vigorous, lively clip from the first page, plunging through complex ideas and relationships without neglecting any of them." (San Francisco Chronicle)
