RIOT AND REVOLUTION, 1963: Birmingham is a city in flames. And nobody is too young to die...

Martin Luther King is on his way. The town is a powder keg, waiting to explode. And the spark that sets it off is the savagely abused corpse of a little black girl who was just twelve years old.

Murder follows murder. It appears to be random racial violence. But is it? Homicide detective Ben Wellman senses a sinister link between the series of vicious killings--a plot that extends to the assassination of Dr. King.

In Birmingham, white is one color. Black is another. But there are other colors that matter in Birmingham, the color of money and the color of blood. (back cover)
