About this item
A classic entry in Chester Himess trailblazing Harlem Detectives series, Cotton Comes to Harlem is one of his hardest-hitting and most entertaining thrillers.
Flim-flam man Deke OHara is no sooner out of Atlantas state penitentiary than hes back on the streets working the scam of a lifetime. As sponsor of the Back-to-Africa movement, hes counting on a big Harlem rally to produce a massive collectionfor his own private charity. But the take is hijacked by white gunmen and hidden in a bale of cotton that suddenly everyone wants to get his hands on. As NYPD detectives Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones piece together the complexity of the scheme, we are treated to Himess brand of hard-boiled crime fiction at its very best.
