Heaven, My Home

Attica Locke

Named a ‘Best Book of the Year’ by the New York TimesGuardian, LitHub, NPR and many more, Heaven, My Home is the second installment in Harper Lee Prize-winning Attica Locke’s Highway 59 series: crime novels that lay bare race relations in the US. When nine-year-old Levi King goes missing, Texas Ranger Darren Matthews joins the search, but it’s the boy’s family of white supremacists who are his real target. Levi’s disappearance has links to Darren’s last case, and to a wealthy businesswoman, the boy’s grandmother, who seems more concerned about the fate of her business than that of her grandson. Darren has to battle centuries-old suspicions and prejudices, as well as threats that have been reignited in the current political climate, as he races to find the boy, and to save himself.
