Description

Nichelle Tramble's first novel, The Dying Ground (F0102), was named a Best Book of 2001 by the Chicago Tribune and the San Francisco Chronicle. In this follow-up work, Maceo returns home after drifting for two years. He finds his friends tangled up in a murder case and he must act fast to save them. "Tramble proves herself an unpretentious poet whose sense of the inner city, its argot and its inhabitants, is almost romantic-and certainly vivid."-Philadelphia Weekly

Professional reviews

"This is the second novel in a series about the life of Oakland resident Maceo Redfield. The hero returns home to help solve a murder and reconnect with his extended family. JD Jackson's narration grabs the listener from beginning to end in this taut thriller. Whether he is an elderly barber, a Creole grandmother, or a young blood trying to make his way in a hostile world, Jackson's vocalizations transport the listener to the reality of contemporary African-American life in a lower-middle-class northern California community. Few actors have this kind of linguistic repertoire, so the Tramble/Jackson collaboration makes for a highly entertaining audiobook. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
