J.W. and his partner, Tyrone Walker, sift through an unusual cast of characters, ranging from black gangs dealing crack to an heir apparent son of Southern aristocracy - and even the newly crowned Maid of Cotton. To make matters worse, someone is intent on turning out mass-market bad barbecue, the unpardonable sin in Memphis.
Through all this, a power struggle for gang leadership has left bodies strewn about the Bluff City. Wondering if agrarian fever might not be so bad, J.W. takes the investigation to his home country, the Mississippi Delta. What he finds could change his life forever...or end it.

Avid reader paper, hardcover, listening, e-read. Reading is fundamental! Now let's talk.
This book is boring and doesn't move very quickly. I don't usually write bad reviews, but this the content is offensive.
