In the tense summer before Detroita€™s 1967 race riots, a former cop faces off against some of the citya€™s most dangerous forces Rage simmers beneath the tranquil surface of 1960s Detroit. As the auto industry enjoys its last moments of prosperity, widespread discrimination infuriates the citya€™s black middle class. One of the most destructive riots of the twentieth century is around the corner, and Rick Amery is going to be right in the middle. A longtime cop forced out of the department on trumped-up graft charges, Amery shares Detroita€™s obsession with muscle cars. It was the temptation of a white a€™64 Thunderbird that cost him his badge, and it is for the sake of General Motors that he takes his first job as a private investigator, digging up dirt on a consumer advocate who calls GM cars death traps. Amery must work quickly, for no hot rod on Earth is fast enough to outrun the trouble thata€™s gaining on the Motor City. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D.
