When a pantsless man with his throat cut dies at the feet of Coffin Ed and Grave Digger Jones, its up to the toughest detectives in Harlem to find out who killed him. But can they solve the murder and figure out whos causing the riots that threaten to destroy Harlem? Like Himess other books featuring Coffin Ed and Grave Digger Jones, its a commentary about racism and racial equality. You can definitely tell by reading it that Himes wasnt planning on writing another Harlem Detective book. This one is bleak, chaotic, and even the baddest detectives in Harlem seem to be getting tired. Chaotic would be the best way to describe the narrative.

Here is a description:. As far back as Lieutenant Anderson could remember, both of them, his two ace detectives with their identical big hard-shooting, head-whipping pistols, had always looked like two hog farmers on a weekend in the Big Town.

He is more articulate than Coffin Ed who has one distinct feature - his face, which has been badly scarred by a thrown glass of acid.
