- By: Thomas Mullen
- Narrated by: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

Officer Denny Rakestraw, "Negro officers" Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith, and Sergeant McInnis have their hands full in an overcrowded and rapidly changing Atlanta. It's 1950, and color lines are shifting and racial tensions are simmering. Black families - including Smith's sister and brother-in-law - are moving into Rake's formerly all-white neighborhood, leading some residents to raise money to buy them out while others advocate a more violent solution.

You cannot beat when a book combines a great fictional story with a history lesson about the city you live in. Mullen creates engaging realistic characters. I hope there is more!!
