Lemaster Carlyle, the president of the country's most prestigious university, and his wife, Julie, the divinity school's deputy dean, are America's most prominent and powerful African American couple. Driving home through a swirling blizzard late one night, the couple skids off the road. Near the sight of their accident they discover a dead body. To her horror, Julia recognizes the body as a prominent academic and one of her former lovers. In the wake of the death, the icy veneer of their town Elm Harbor, a place Julie calls "the heart of whiteness," begins to crack, having devastating consequences for a prominent local family and sending shock waves all the way to the White House.

    " Come for the murder mystery and stay for commentary on African American social politics. Despite books like Our Kind of People, many still don't believe that these types of groups exist and relegate them to the myths of The Cosby Show. I really enjoyed this book because I am familiar with the social stratums delineated and the author does a pretty good job writing from a woman's point of view. The mystery is taut enough to keep you reading but there are a few elements (for example, a supernatural plot twist) that he doesn't follow through on. It's during moments like these that he seems to take the reader for granted. I think following through on a few of these tangents would have only enriched the story. The premise is interesting and one that hasn't been done before and the author is an intelligent writer. A great addition to the genre. "
