Eddie Stevens is burning inside. . . . . .and he's burning mad at the world. He's mad at the family he lost--his parents and sisters viciously killed by a gang in their own home; and he's mad at the foster family that "e;rescued"e; him--headed up by a powerful Harlem congressman who sees Eddie as a campaign ploy. Mainly, Eddie is mad at himself, for getting caught by the cops with blood on his hands. Blood he should have washed off right away. He was sloppy this time. It won't happen again. Because Eddie knows the fever that ignites his rage is wasted--unless it's put to use. And he intends to put it to use again and again. . . Praise for Havoc After Dark "e;If the late jazz legend Sun Ra wrote a book of fiction, it would be like this--ingenious, way-out, probing, daring, mind-altering, leading-edge. Robert Fleming is all refined sensibilities and grim bravado. His abilities and narratives exhilarate and frighten me. They freak me out. They turn me on. They make me ask deep questions. This cat is baaad!"e; Colin Channer, author of Waiting in Vain and Satisfy My Soul."e; Robert Fleming, a former award-winning journalist and writer, is the author of Havoc After Dark, The Wisdom of the Elders, and The African American Writer's Handbook.
