4.5 stars
Superbly written, fast paced, tense and a great look at race, class, privilege and violence. All centered around the Tulsa race riot of 1921. I loved how flawed and at times unlikeable both characters were, I think it’s cool how these two individuals from two wildly different times are unlearning their privilege and making strides to be much better people. Dynamic characters indeed. Also don’t expect a good mystery out of this because it’s not really..that amazing, but the story is good nonetheless.
