Two rival gangs. Four dead innocents. One beleaguered city caught in the crossfire.
Red City Blues is the third C.T. Ferguson crime novella. You'll love this book because it features classic noir mystery, a wise-cracking cyber-savvy sleuth, and a realistic look at big-city violence in a shorter package you can binge-read in one night.
Erma Johnson lives in a rough part of Baltimore. Gangs are a fact of life. She lost her daughter and grandson to their violence.
She’s convinced, however, that her grandson wasn’t in a gang.
Hacker turned private investigator C.T. Ferguson takes her case. The more he looks around, the more he thinks she’s right.
Then another woman and her son are gunned down.
With violence on the streets boiling over, C.T. races to figure out what happened. If the four casualties weren’t part of a turf war, who’s responsible, and what does it mean for Baltimore? It may cost C.T. his life to find out.
