The festering racial tensions in a Tennessee backwater town called Forrest come to the boil after a black grandmother is raped and shot by a gang of white teenagers. Only one man has the capacity to keep a lid on the mounting violence and that's the town's senior black cop, Walter Robinson. Only trouble is Walter's own life isn't in great shape: his constant infidelities are wrecking his marriage, and his nephew Cebo is the street druglord who's leading the charge to take revenge on the whites. This is a two-fisted portrayal of the New South as it really is - riven by poverty, drugs and racism, but still struggling towards a better future. In "Shadow of Light", James E. Cherry reports back from America's Internal frontline. Ronny met her in full stride, grabbed her around the neck and shoved her against the kitchen sink. Her throat palpitating in his hands felt like the supple body of the gray pigeon he'd held once when he was ten years old before smashing it in the head with a baseball bat. He stared through her oblivious to the gurgling noises emanating from her throat, blue eyes bulging with red veins and the purpleness of her complexion growing in proportion to the increased intensity of his strength. For the second time in less than twenty four hours, he held the power of life and death in his hands.
