JACKSON PARK by CHARLOTTE CARTER
From the acclaimed author of the Nanette Hayes mystery
novels comes a thrilling new series featuring an
unforgettable trio of sleuths. By turns gritty and
gracefully written, Jackson Park is a compelling novel of
noir suspense—a fast-paced page-turner that is also a
glimpse inside Black life in Chicago during a pivotal
moment in American history.
It is the Spring of 1968. After the assassination of Martin
Luther King Jr., the city of Chicago is a powder keg ready
to explode. Against this tense backdrop, there is Woodson
and Ivy Lisle, an elegant couple living in a shabby chic
apartment hotel in Cook County's Hyde Park. Both are proud
patriarchs of a large, extended family, which includes
their twenty-year-old grandniece, Cassandra, a college
student standing at the crossroads— and on the brink of a
troubling mystery involving the missing granddaughter of an
old family friend.
Fearing for the girl's safety, Woody, Ivy, and Cassandra
begin a determined investigation. What they uncover is a
chilling link to an old murder case. Now a shattering
secret of the past threatens all who try to expose it.
