Review:

“A landmark among expressions of racial justice that retains its power today . . . A resonant take on southern justice . . . that has had more lasting impact than works many times its size.” —John Ridley, from the Foreword

“[Virgil Tibbs is] a remarkable individual who may well end up in the great detective category.” —The New York Times
