Date parution :

Joe King Oliver was one of the NYPD's finest investigators until, dispatched to arrest a well-heeled car thief, he is framed for assault, a charge that lands him in the notorious Rikers Island prison.

A decade later, King is a private detective, running his agency with the help of his teenage daughter, Aja-Denise. When he receives a card in the mail from the woman who admits she was paid by someone in the NYPD to frame him all those years ago, King realises that he has no choice but to take his own case: figuring out who on the force wanted him disposed of - and why.

At the same time, King must investigate the case of black radical journalist Leonard Compton, aka A Free Man, accused of killing two on-duty police officers who had been abusing their badges to traffic drugs and women into the city's poorest neighbourhoods.

In pursuit of justice, our hero must beat dirty cops and even dirtier bankers. All the while, two lives hang in the balance: Compton's, and King's own.



Revue de presse

Rekindles some of the remarkable energy that drove the early Rawlins novels. . . . Mosley writes with great power here about themes that have permeated his work: institutional racism, political corruption, and the ways that both of these issues affect not only society at large but also the inner lives of individual men and women. And he has created a new hero in Joe Oliver with the depth and vulnerability to sustain what readers will hope becomes a new series. . . . It's the perfect moment for Mosley to unveil an exciting new hero and a series set in the present and confronting the issues that drive today's headlines (Booklist (starred review))

An excellent standalone . . . The novel's dedication - to Malcolm, Medgar, and Martin - underlines the difference that one man can make in the fight for justice (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

A heady stew of racial politics and seedy characters that Mosley's fans are sure to eat up (AARP)

It's Mosley's signature style - rough-hewn, rhythmic, and lyrical - that makes you ready and eager for whatever he's serving up . . . Let the good times roll (Kirkus Reviews)

An engaging standalone . . . Mosley fans will welcome another imaginative page-turning from a mystery grand master (Library Journal)

Exceptional (Geoffrey Wansell The Daily Mail)
