Jackson Park

(2003)
(The first book in the Cook County series)
A novel by

 
 
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.
