I actually enjoyed this book. It is a little raw and definitely written for men but it was well written, action packed and at times humorous. I will be reading the other 2 in this series. ( )

The series is set in contemporary Baltimore. Darryl Billups is a wiry, 5'10" and 145 lb man in his early thirties. At the beginning, he is a crime reporter for the (fictional) Baltimore Herald. He loves being a journalist, but has a somewhat uneasy relationship with the newspaper, which has generally ignored the African-American community and has only reluctantly integrated the staff.

Darryl's family consists of his parents, Dolores and James, and his younger sister, Camille, an up-and-coming, status-conscious lawyer. His older brother James Jr. died in Vietnam in 1970. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380790254, Mass Market Paperback)

A reporter for the Baltimore Herald, Darryl Billups is a black journalist who's been passed up and looked down upon because he won't kiss butt and always speaks his mind. When he receives a voice mail message from a crackpot warning him about an impending wave of white supremacist violence, he pays it no mind. But when bombs start to go off all over town -- and a noted liberal philanthropist is slain -- Billups quickly becomes a believer. The devil has come to Baltimore spouting neo-Nazi garbage, and he's daring a lone black reporter to hunt him down. And as the stakes get higher, deadlier, and more personal, Darryl is off and running -- determined to chase a deadly urban nightmare to its rotting, poisonous core.
