Green Sun

By Kent Anderson

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

Oakland, 1982: one good cop against the world. GREEN SUN is the long-awaited third novel from cult author Kent Anderson.

'Green Sun tells the unvarnished truth about what it is to be a cop in modern day America. I can give a suspense novel no higher compliment' James Patterson

The acclaimed author of Night Dogs and Sympathy for the Devil returns with a blistering new novel.

Hanson thought he had witnessed the worst of humanity after a tour of duty in Vietnam and a stint as a cop in Oregon. Then he moves to Oakland, California to join the under-funded, understaffed police department.

Hanson chooses to live - alone - in the precinct that he patrols; he, unlike the rest of the white officers, takes seriously his duty to serve and protect the black community of East Oakland.

He will encounter prejudice and hate on both sides of the line... and struggle to keep true to himself against powerful opposition and personal danger.

Green Sun is a raw, unflinching novel about America's divided cities and one man's divided soul.
