This is a fast paced novel, with two exciting story lines going on at the same time. Takes place in a somewhat downtrodden 'project' filled with poor seniors and young mothers with little children and little else. I could hardly put it down.
This is quite the event. Sophie Morrison, a young doctor, goes to a house to treat a patient. She doesn't realize when entering that the house contains a pedophile and his difficult father. Word has reached the street that the pedo lives there and residents are demanding his removal. The demands turn into a mass demonstration that threatens to get ugly.
Meanwhile, Sophie is stuck inside with the father making threats, both oral and physical, and she has no safe way out. On the outside, the mob has gotten so large that it endangers many people. An unlikely hero arises.
I found it absorbing and compelling.

Acid Row is the name the destitute residents gave their crime-ridden housing project--a no-man's-land infested with desperation, suspicion, and fear. When news comes that a ten-year-old girl has gone missing, the boiling resentment that has seethed on Acid Row, is set to explode. Once ignited, no one will be safe.
