This book was inspired by a real life shooting that took place in May 1980. The black president of the National Urban League was shot as he was getting out of the car of a 36-year white woman, Martha Coleman, at 2 a.m. in Fort Wayne. The story hit newspaper headlines.
Describing a similar incident, this fictional story captures the flavour of racial attitudes and interracial relationships in the 1970s when liaisons between white women and black men were frowned upon.

The choices make her the wrong woman at the wrong time and at the wrong place. How does she finally cope with the inner demons driving her to acts of sheer folly?
