The ‘propulsive, haunting’ and ‘gripping’ (Oprah) rediscovered classic that exposes the dark heart of America for an inncocent Black man on the run from the police

Fred Daniels, a black man, is randomly picked up by the police after a brutal murder in a Chicago suburb. Taken to the local precinct, he is tortured — until he confesses to a crime he didn’t commit.

But when he sees his chance, Fred Daniels, makes a run for it. With the world now against him, there is only one place left to hide: Underground. Taking residence in the sewers below the streets of Chicago, Fred’s new vantage point takes him on a journey through America’s unjust, and inhumane underbelly.
