Description:
'White or black, it doesn't make much difference when you're at the end of a rope.'

On a hot South Carolina night, a famous conductor is found dead in the road, his head caved in and his wallet gone. The local police pick up a black man in possession of a suspiciously full wallet. This stranger, however, turns out to be acclaimed homicide investigator Virgil Tibbs, and Chief Gillespie will soon be insisting he solve the very case he was accused of committing. But in a town like Wells Tibbs's presence alone is enough to cause trouble - and before long his own life is in very real danger.

About the Author

John Ball (1911-1988) was born in Schenectady, New York, and grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A part-time police officer in Los Angeles for a time, he wrote more than thirty novels including mysteries, war novels, and adventure stories; his Virgil Tibbs series remains his best-known work. Despite considerable pressure from his editor, Ball insisted on making Tibbs a black man, garnering him praise for progressive thinking and a keen understanding of racial prejudice.
