Up jumped the devil

Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: "A reporter for the Baltimore Herald, Darryl Billups never wanted to be a hero. He's just a hardworking black journalist who's been passed up and looked down upon because he won't kiss butt and always speaks his mind. That doesn't change the fact that he's one of the best damn newspapermen on the East Coast and his editors know it. And soon the whole city will too." "At first he ignores the voice mail message warning him about an impending wave of white supremacist violence - just another crackpot with nothing better to do with his time than make crank phone calls. After all, Darryl has his own problems: a boss who's itching to fire him, a hot new lady love, Yolanda, who just moved in...along with her little boy, Jamal. But when bombs start to go off all over town and a noted liberal philanthropist is slain, Billups quickly becomes a believer." "Warned that the headquarters of the NAACP is the next target, Darryl is off and running - chasing a deadly urban nightmare to its rotting, poisonous core. And with a city and his new "family" under siege, Darryl Billups is after well as the story of a lifetime. But it could cost him his life to get it."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
