10/28 The Savage City

The Savage City:  Race, Murder and a City on the Edge
by T.J. English
2011/ 496 pages /rating 8

The Savage City was sometimes too dark and gritty  for my tastes.  Other times it suited me just fine.  I stayed up way after hours to finish it last night.   The narrative switches between two or three narratives –  first there is the story of George Whitmore,  a poor, black, well-meaning but ignorant and innocent kid from New Jersey who is picked up for murder and framed for it.
