Description
In 1997, Clearwater, Florida was just coming off a tumultuous riot after a young black man was shot and killed by the police. A hotbed of racial tension, drug dealing gangs, the headquarters of The Black Socialist Party, Scientology, and every latest P.C. social engineering program, with church, academic and political leaders all seeking federal aid money, the city was simmering toward a fresh eruption. Into this midst came President Clinton, making a visit to dole out those dollars. "The Clinton Coming" is a gripping novel that follows the lives of those who found themselves in the trenches of those volatile times. Anwar Branch is a young black preacher whose love interest and best friend is Sonja Macetti, the daughter of an ex-vice cop, Mike Macetti, who is now a car salesman and leader of a white militia. They clash head on with the drug dealing, gang banging Crips and the Black Socialist Party, both holding Clearwater hostage to their crime and violence. Get ready to dive headfirst into some of the tensest years of the 20th century that are still profoundly relevant today.
