COTTON COMES TO HARLEM by Chester Himes

COTTON COMES TO HARLEM by Chester HimesBlack flim-flam man Deke O’Hara is no sooner out of Atlanta’s state penitentiary than he’s back on the streets working the scam of a lifetime. As sponsor of the Back-to-Africa movement he’s counting on the big Harlem rally to produce a big collection – for his own private charity. But the take – $87,000 is hijacked by white gunmen and hidden in a bale of cotton that suddenly everybody wants to get his hands on. With Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones on everyone’s trail and piercing together the complexity of the scheme, Cotton Comes to Harlem is one of Hime’s hardest-hitting and most entertaining thrillers.
