This is a story of the African American middle-class during the Harlem Renaissance. It's a bit of a mystery focusing on the murder of one twin sister and the disappearance of the other twin. The story provides insight into the color/class system of the time as well as the convoluted relationship of an interesting cast of characters who may (or may not) be responsible for the murder/disappearance of the twins.

Great read

When I first picked up this book, I wasn't sure I would like it. However, Harlem Redux is wonderful. I found it so good, in fact, that I stayed up all night to finish it. Truly a good mystery. I hope Ms. Walker writes many more. I would love to see some of the characters appear in future books to know what happens to them. I loved the story so much that I actually emailed the author to tell her so (and surprisingly, she emailed me back).
