Acclaimed author Marita Golden has a “rare gift for the poetry of language” (San Francisco Chronicle). African-American police officer and family man Carson Blake pulls over a young black man for speeding. When the man reaches for his cell phone, Carson thinks he’s going for a weapon and shoots to kill. Now a promising life has been snuffed out, and Carson must begin a painful journey toward redemption.
