First U.K. edition. Signed by the author. Fine in fine dust jacket. Set in Boston at the end of WWI, this is the story of two families--one black, one white--swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries, immigrants and ward bosses, socialites and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power. Beat cop Danny Coughlin, the son of one of the city's most beloved and powerful police captains, joins a growing union movement and the hunt for violent radicals. Luther Laurence, on the run after a deadly confrontation with a crime boss in Tulsa, works for the Coughlin family and tries desperately to find his way home to his pregnant wife.
