    This novel is both a mystery and a social commentary on the social and personal lives of African Americans. The mystery concerns investigative reporter Theophilous Pugh, who is uncovering facts about the death of a school teacher. The social commentary concerns the consequences of gifted Blacks that try and cross over a narrow minded community's social mores.
