Summary of book It’s 1956 in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington D.C., when a prominent Black undertaker is brutally murdered in his own home. With only four black cops on the force and disinterest from the Chief of Police, institutional racism stands in the way of uncovering the killer. Easton Priest is an up-and-coming reporter looking to create a future for himself. When his fiancé’s father is murdered, the determined young investigator, risks his life to seek the truth for the sake of the man he respected and the woman he intends to marry. Shaw is the story of a community shattered by betrayal and murder, struggling for justice amidst a wall of racism. A young, black journalist seems to be the only hope for restoring dignity to the people and finding a killer on the loose.
