“T.J. English has the mastered the hybrid narrative art form of social history and underworld thriller. The Savage City is a truly gripping read filled with unexpected twists and turns.”
—Douglas Brinkley, author of The Great Deluge
In The Savage City, T.J. English, author of the New York Times bestselling blockbuster Havana Nocturne, takes readers back to a frightening place in a dark time of violence and urban chaos: New York City in the 1960s and early ’70s. As he did in his acclaimed true crime masterwork, The Westies, English focuses on the rot on the Big Apple in this stunning tale of race, murder, and a generation on the edge—as he interweaves the real-life sagas of a corrupt cop, a militant Black Panther, and an innocent young African American man framed by the NYPD for a series of crimes, including a brutal and sensational double murder.

Possibly the best book on the topic of civil rights I have ever read. It is an invaluable companion to books like The Autobiography of Malcolm X or any other of great achievement. A fascinating crime-drama plot that examines not only the depths of depravity we are willing to subject others to, but also the great hope that we are all part of one human family. This is a truly great read. 10 out of 10.
An astounding civics lesson.
Both informative and entertaining, I couldn't put this book down.
