“A murder mystery set among the black bourgeoisie, it is also the heady tale of a bygone era … compelling family intrigue and a full, vibrant portrait of that storied era when Harlem’s pulse was the rhythm of black America.”
—The Boston Globe
“As much a story of lies, deceit and murder as it is a commentary on race and class, Harlem Redux is filled with colorful characters.”
—The New York Daily News
“A rich, thoroughly enjoyable tale of greed and deceit, passion and betrayal.”
—April Christofferson, author of The Protocol and Clinical Trial
“Exotic locales, an odd supporting cast, worthy subplots, and a baffling set of clues….”
A sweeping tale of old loves and festering hatreds, this story will plunge you into the glittering world of the Harlem Renaissance, from the wealthy salons of its movers and shakers to the crowded tenements of its poor.
