Abstract:

"The year is 1974. Boston's Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood under siege. The banks have redlined the neighborhood, causing the housing market to crash, wiping out local homeowner's lifetime investments and opening the neighborhood to blockbusters and slumlords. Someone is systematically torching abandoned buildings and the charred body of Sandy Morgan, a dedicated young neighborhood organizer, has been found among the ashes. Why? Who stands to gain? Leda community organizer and Marine combat veteran Jedediah Flynt, hired by a coalition of churches to stabilize the neighborhood, has sworn to find those responsible and avenge this young woman's death. Flynt's fight to save a Boston neighborhood and his search for those responsible lead him through a maze of corrupt politicians, greedy bankers, Chinese Mafiosi and pedophile priests"--Back cover.
