The acclaimed author of Night Dogs and Sympathy for the Devil returns with a blistering new novel - his first in over 20 years.

Hanson thought he had witnessed the worst of humanity after a tour of duty in Vietnam and a stint as a cop in Oregon. Then he moves to Oakland, California to join the under-funded, understaffed police department.

Unlike the rest of the white officers, Hanson takes seriously his duty to serve and protect the black community of East Oakland.

He will encounter prejudice and hate on both sides of the line... and struggle to keep true to himself against powerful opposition and personal danger.

Green Sun is a raw, unflinching novel about America's divided cities and one man's divided soul.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Kent Anderson immediately pulls you into his taut, authentic depiction of a cop's life in early-80s Oakland. Green Sun is crime fiction at its best: smart, unflinching, and, ultimately, compassionate." - Alafair Burke

"Kent Anderson has crafted a literary miracle here. We're transported to 'Nam and circa-'80 Oakland, reimagined as Hell, seen through the eyes of a crusading cop unique in the annals of police literature. This jazzy - and jazz influenced - novel is like the best of early Joseph Wambaugh." - James Ellroy

"Green Sun tells the unvarnished truth about what it is to be a cop in modern day America. I can give a suspense novel no higher compliment." - James Patterson
