KIRKUS REVIEW

Trouble follows Peter Styles like Miz Fortune in the old Al Capp cartoons. A talented young Negro playwright is brutally beaten to death by four white men within a block of Styles' apartment. And his death may be connected with a substantial Black Power blackmail threat. . . to blow up Grand Central Station at rush hour unless the city comes up with ten million dollars. But is it Black Power or white criminality? The search extends from Harlem to the Waterfront to the Syndicate to Gracie Mansion as the city becomes Riot Zone, U.S.A. Too darn hot to be believed but there's certainly a lot of action.
