This is possibly one of the best written series I've ever read. I rarely pick up a book set in anything other than the present day. I am glad that I made an exception in this case. The books are set in the turbulent sixties. While there are many racial injustices against black people in the story there is blame spread around to both white AND black people. The balance is one rarely found in books that tackle these issues. Smokey Dalton is simply one of the best characters to come out of crime fiction to date. I highly recommend this series to mystery and suspense readers as well as general fiction readers.

More than just a mystery (and the mystery is intriguing), A Dangerous Road gives the reader a true sense of Memphis in 1968. Plot, characterization, dialogue, atmosphere, this book has it all.
