A Darkness Unto The Dawn
R.A. St. James
R.A. St. James is an African American author that lives with his family in California. His interests are classic jazz, movies (especially horror and old TCM classics) and far too many lime tortilla chips. He writes fiction and non-fiction from the perspective of the African American experience.
A Darkness Unto The Dawn is a thrilling vigilante justice tale that will leave readers on the edge of their seats as they cheer on the hero! Ishmael “Ish” Carter: African American computer wiz, Army Special Ops soldier, grieving father and militant on a mission. He’s grown tired of standing on the sidelines, hoping against hope that the system that allows police officers to target innocent Black men, women and children will fix itself. When his daughter is killed at the hands of yet another in a long line of so-called ‘bad’ cop, his days of sitting idly by are over. Determined to do something, he becomes part of a small group of like-minded militants and brings his military prowess and years of pent-up anger to the streets to right the wrongs. FBI Special Agent Dexter Madden fights hard to remain impartial in a world rampant with racism, discrimination, and hate. As a Black agent, he knows his every move is scrutinized. His decisions are weighed against biases, both real and perceived. His struggle to remain on the side of law and order in the face of injustice and bigotry has taken its toll on him and his family. He knows he should quit, but a profound sense of duty keeps him in the fight for one more case. This one is unlike any the seasoned agent has tackled in the past. This one is personal - in a way he would never have imagined. As the Black militants set their sights on members of law enforcement, Madden finds himself in an untenable situation. He’s caught between loyalty to his job and loyalty to his people. One wrong move could cost him everything, including his life. It’s like #BlackLivesMatter meets ‘The A-Team’. Find out what happens when two African American men on opposite sides of a battle neither can afford to lose go toe-to-toe in an arena that sees them both as “other” in this timely, gut-wrenching, adrenaline-rushing vigilante justice crime thriller!
African American men and women between the ages of 22-45.
