Room to Swing
Toussaint Moore is a college-educated, decorated war veteran. When he’s hired by producers of a reality television show to keep tabs on the whereabouts of an accused rapist, the gig goes quickly south; Moore finds the man murdered and himself framed for the deed. Moore flees to the small Ohio town where the dead man committed his crime but encounters a whole new level of resistance and racism as a Black man asking questions in a small-minded, predominantly White town. Using his wits, he sets a trap for the real killer in this Edgar Award-winning novel.
