Nominated for an Edgar Award for best first novel.
Sweetsmoke is the Virginia plantation where Cassius has lived his entire life in slavery. Although his relatively elevated status gives him some amount of freedom, such as driving to town alone, he's still treated with disdain by both his master and fellow slaves. Cassius' routine is interrupted one day by news that a close friend has been murdered, and he is determined to unravel the truth of the crime, although it means he'll have to push the limits of his bondage, and therefore risk his life.
Sweetsmoke was a satisfying and educational read, although not overwhelmingly compelling.
