With its introduction of a bold new voice in crime fiction, Glenville Lovell’s first mystery, Too Beautiful to Die, was called a “page-turner” (New York Daily News) and “stylish entertainment” (Booklist). Now Lovell is back, with a timely novel of a brilliant young African-American politician gunned down as his career is about to take off. Just when ex-cop Blades Overstreet finally has his life back on track, the son of his good friend and mentor is murdered before his eyes. Blades knows he won’t be able to rest until the killer is brought to justice. He begins a search that leads him on a dangerous journey into the heart of the Russian mob and, ultimately, into a confrontation with a past he had hoped was buried long ago.
Glenville Lovell was born in Barbados. He is the author of several prizewinning plays as well as two novels, Song of Night and Fire in the Canes.
