It is December 1968. In the wake of assassinations and the violence of the Democratic convention in Chicago, “Summer of Love” idealism has disintegrated into suspicion and disillusion. On the city’s North Side, twenty-something Cassandra Perry longs to be independent. She leaves the overprotective embrace of her granduncle and grandaunt, Woody and Ivy Lisle, and moves into a multiracial commune dedicated to brotherhood and justice. But Cassandra’s search for identity plunges her into the dark side of peace, love, and unlimited freedom—even before she discovers the brutally violated bodies of the commune’s most charismatic activist couple.


As Cassandra investigates with the help of Woody and Ivy, she begins to see some friends—especially one of her dearest—in a disturbing, deadly light. But when the three amateur sleuths run afoul of a police cover-up with explosive political ramifications, they face a desperate enemy determined to bury the—along with the truth.

About the Author

Charlotte Carter is the author of crime novels including the Nanette Hayes Mysteries Rhode Island Red, Coq au Vin, and Drumsticks—featuring a saxophone-playing street musician and crime solver. Though Nanette is from a solidly middle-class black family, her salty language, boho ways, and irreverent humor undercut her bourgeois upbringing—and often land her in the middle of a murder case. The books have been translated into French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch.

A recipient of the Chester Himes Black Mystery Award, Carter has also worked as an editor and teacher. A longtime resident of downtown New York City, she has also lived in France and North Africa, where she took writing workshops with Paul Bowles.
