In the late 1930's America is just coming out of the Great Depression. Wesley Farrell is a Night Club owner who passes for white. He knows his secret is dangerous and must draw a line between himself and people who are unmistakably black. He seemed complicated and lonely.

This was a fascinating era to read about and the mystery has some interesting twist and turns with a little unique romance. I must warn you it is a mature theme.
