(From the publisher):
A chain reaction started when somebody threw a bomb into the Abyssinian First Baptist Church. A hideous explosion of fires, mutilations, murders, and more bombings followed. After the church the powerhouse was hit. Next the airport. Then the banks. Adding fuel to the arson was Buddy and his gang, wreaking a black man's revenge on "Whitey."
Mayor Miller Boyd never lived to hear the truth about what was happening. Carleton Asmore, the young District Attorney, had class, money, women - and doubts about what he saw. Caroline Vargle was an unspoiled social worker from Vermont.
The truth: it was planned. The fiendish brain-child of a madman who sat hundreds of miles away and knew the city inside out. Though he'd never been there...
