From BOOKLIST "Racial issues abound in this sensitive sequel to Supreme Justice (1999). Hardwick's complex, conflicted, but gutsy cop hero, Detective Danny Cavanaugh, of Detroit's Special Crimes Unit (called "the Sewer" because the unit must solve the worst crimes), is a white cop with a record for being violent ("overzealous" in department jargon) in a predominantly black city. As the enforced visits to the department shrink reveal, Cavanaugh's attitudes toward race are problematic for a cop. All his festering problems bubble up when he's assigned to catch the architect of a crime spree that targets wealthy African Americans. Hardwick presents an unflinching picture of how race plays out on the streets and in the police. He paints unforgettable pictures of gutted-out cityscapes... Thought-provoking crime fiction.

Raised in the bosom of the inner city, white Detroit Homicide cop Danny Cavanaugh speaks and acts with the unmistakable attitude of a black man. But the savage murders of affluent African-Americans are plunging him into the urban heart of terror, where he will learn first-hand how powerful, inviolate — and deadly — the color line truly is.

Fron the Author: "Danny Cavanaugh died in the first draft of Supreme Justice. My editors didn't like this and frankly, neither did I. So I resurrected him but only if I got to write a book about him. I'm so glad we all came to our senses. Danny is what we all need, a man who is a truly colorblind hero"
