The Black Hearts Murder (1970)

Where is Harlan James? He was the indicted, bail-jumping leader of Banbury's militant Black Hearts -- who had gone underground...but whose rage, still heard on tape, was edging the city towards interracial terror. Harlan James called for violence -- for black protests, demonstrations, drastic political action against the city's white leaders. But did he also call for -- or commit -- murder? It was a top-priority job for Mike McCall, a new breed of crime-fighter, whose cases plunge him into the crises of modern America.... A prominent white official is shot to death and Mike must find the Killer -- or face open racial warfare!
