“Like the work of Richard Wright, Shadow of Light is in the tradition of black novels that become unforgettable.”—Jerry W. Ward, Jr.

Black cop. White town. Deep South.

The festering racial tensions in a Tennessee backwater town come to a boil after a black grandmother is raped and shot by a gang of white teenagers. Only one man has the capacity to keep a lid on the mounting violence and that’s the town’s senior black cop, Walter Robinson.

A two-fisted portrayal of the South today—riven by poverty, drugs, and racism, but still struggling toward a better future.

James E. Cherry is a new African American voice. Shadow of Light is his first novel.
