Synopsis:

After the death of his father, the accomplished, flamboyant, and controversial Judge Oliver Garland, his son Talcott, a law professor, must unravel the truth about his father's life, a quest that brings him face to face with old scandals, family secrets, and justice gone wrong. By the author of The Culture of Disbelief. A first novel. Reprint.


Review:

"...THE EMPEROR OF OCEAN PARK turns out to be two very different stories. The family drama is a closely observed, often affecting portrait of the Garland clan, an elite, socially prominent black family with a secret history that will come to haunt its youngest son. The thriller is a contrived, implausible and needlessly baroque melodrama, which reads as if it were written for serial publication, with nearly every chapter ending on a hokey cliffhanger...."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 06/04/2002

Review:

"A literate page-turner that effortlessly blends a gripping whodunit with complex discussions of race in contemporary America." (starred review)
