Set against the backdrop of the strike and protests that will end with Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, A Dangerous Road combines the politics of race, betrayal, unexpected love, and the terrible cost of trust into a story so memorable the Mystery Writers of America chose it as one of the top five novels of the year.

Enjoyable and informative read.
What made the experience of listening to A Dangerous Road the most enjoyable?
This book covers a time in history that I lived. I enjoyed the experience from the level of a real person.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
No, but it had enough to it to keep me listening.
Which scene was your favorite?
There were so many scenes that I can't pick just one out as a favorite. It was a good book.
If you could take any character from A Dangerous Road out to dinner, who would it be and why?
It would be the beautiful young lady who opened up Dalton's world with her appearance. She appears to have courage and insight that I would find interesting to learn more about.
Any additional comments?
It looks like the Smoky Dalton story will take a fair amount of time and the purchase of several books if I decide to read the entire thing.

Breathtaking. Complex. Heartbreaking.
Humanizing the history of the assassination of Martin Luther King is no small feat. We have so lionized the man and his movement that it is easy to forget that he was a man with friends and one who faced an unknowable future just as do we all. Kris Nelscott has placed her protagonist on the periphery of the civil rights movement but squarely in the center of the civil rights story. The mystery around which she winds her telling is a well-utilized MacGuffin but it is the richly drawn characters and simple, smart, informed style that make this book one to which I will return.
