Sinopsis:

"Black & White, as the title suggests, is painted on a broad canvas of stark contrasts and big themes, but the book doesn't suffer under the weight of its ambition....The novel's mere existence is proof that Shiner means it--and that readers ignore him at their peril." --Los Angeles Times

When Michael follows his dying father to North Carolina, a lifetime of lies begins to unravel. His pursuit of his father's past--haunted by voodoo, adultery and murder--takes him to a place called Hayti, once the most prosperous black community in the South. Now the mysteries of Michael's own heritage become a matter of life and death, as racial conflicts barely restrained since the 1960s erupt again.

Rooted in the true story of the US government's urban renewal policy and its disastrous aftermath, Black & White is a literary thriller, a family saga, and a searing portrait of institutionalized hatred.


"A stunning tapestry that captures the hopes, dreams, greed, bigotry, ambitions and betrayals that shaped [the characters'] destinies and those of our country." --Publishers Weekly


From the Inside Flap:

Subterranean Press is proud to publish an omnibus containing the three novels jointly written by Lawrence Block and Donald E. Westlake. The individual titles have out of print for nearly five decades.“Now, as I write these lines, Don's been gone a year and a week. And our three joint novels are now available in this handsome hardcover edition. I'm happy about this, and I can only hope that Don would be pleased as well.I can't be sure of that, as he hasn't had any say in the matter. I do know that, in recent years, he became increasingly open about pseudonymous work that he'd previously kept in the dark. Part of this may have stemmed from a recognition of the inevitability of it all. There are people out there practicing a weird form of scholarship on the crap of which we who wrote it thought so little, and a quick search of the internet can unearth no end of information about our early work, some of which may even be true. The genie, alas, is out of the bottle, and the toothpaste is out of the tube. And, really, what difference does it make? When Don agreed to have Hard Case Crime reissue some of his early books—crime novels, I should point out, which had nothing to apologize for—a mutual friend asked him why he thought this a good idea. The money didn't amount to much, after all, and the work was not as good as what he'd produced since then, and— 'The difference between being in print and out of print,' Don told him, 'is the same as the difference between being alive and being dead.' So I don't think it's too great an abuse of our friendship that I'm shepherding these three books back into print.” —Lawrence Block, from his Introduction
