In The Heat Of The Night
In The Heat Of The Night by John Ball
A Southern town seething with suspicion and hate. The dead body of a brutally slain man. The very live body of a teenage temptress. And a visiting detective suddenly put in charge of the case - a detective who happens to be a Negro - In a taut, savagely-paced tale of murder and mystery introducing Virgil Tibbs... " a remarkable individual who may well end up in the great detective category".
