Publisher's Summary

It's the 1960s. A hot August night lies heavy over the Carolinas. The corpse - legs sprawled, stomach down on the concrete pavement, arms above the head - brings the patrol car to a halt. The local police pick up a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs, only to discover that their most likely suspect is a homicide detective from California - and the racially tense community's single hope in solving a brutal murder that turns up no witnesses, no motives, and no clues.

Very entertaining

Always loved the movie, but had never read the book, so I decided to finally check it out. I usually don't enjoy audio books that much, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The differences between the movie and the novel made for an interesting "read". The narrator had a pleasant voice and did a wonderful job of bringing the book to life.
