Abe Glitsky
  namfos | Sep 8, 2011 |
This is either part of the Dismas Hardy series or part of a separate Abe Glitsky series, depending on your source. I really enjoyed this book. Hardy hardly appears in it at all, so you really get to know Abe Glitsky. The "fugitives" are also very likable characters.

I mostly had it figured out by the end (which I don't mind), but I forgot that I already knew about one of the twists from later books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451217764, Mass Market Paperback)

When the angry white mob poured out of the bar on San Francisco's Geary Street and surrounded an innocent black man, Kevin Shea was the only one who tried to stop them.

As riots rage and politicians posture, Lieutenant Abe Glitsky finds himself under pressure to bring Shea in at all costs. And as respect for the law crumbles-even among those sworn to uphold it-true justice is the only thing that can prevent the death of another innocent man.
