In this highly anticipated sequel to Edgar award-winning DOWN THE RIVER UNTO THE SEA, Joe King Oliver is tested when he's asked to investigate whether a White nationalist is being unjustly set up    When friend of the family and multi-billionaire Roger Ferris comes to Joe with an assignment, he’s got no choice but to accept, even if the case is a tough one to stomach. White nationalist Alfred Xavier Quiller has been accused of murder and the sale of sensitive information to the Russians. Ferris has reason to believe Quiller’s been set up and he needs King to see if the charges hold. This linear assignment becomes a winding quest to uncover the extent of Quiller’s dealings, to understand Ferris’ skin in the game, and to get to the bottom of who is working for whom. Even with the help of bodyguard and mercenary Oliya Ruez—no regular girl Friday—the machine King’s up against proves relentless and unsparing. As King gets closer to exposing the truth, he and his loved ones barrel towards grave danger. Mosley once again proves himself a "master of craft and narrative" (National Book Foundation) in this carefully plotted mystery that is at once a classic caper, a family saga and an examination of fealty, pride and how deep debt can go.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Dion Graham…ratchets up the tension and pace as King peels layer upon layer of an onion that is rotten to the core. Portraying Oliya Ruez, King’s sidekick — with the emphasis on “kick” — Graham shines as wealthy and violent forces push King to the limit. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“[In] Mosley’s entertaining sequel…Joe continues to fascinate as a protagonist, and the secondary characters enrich the story.” Publishers Weekly
“Mosley again shows his talent for character building, not only in the many-sided Joe, as vulnerable as he is resilient, but also in a superb supporting cast, including Joe’s daughter, Aja, and mercenary Oliya.” Booklist
