In his life, Jackson Blaze has been many things: hustler, prizefighter, leg breaker, and decorated war hero. Upon returning home from World War I to his adopted home of Harlem, New York, he finds himself in the middle of a war between gangster boss Jimmy Rose and the Jewish Mafia for control of Harlem's lucrative underworld.
After recruiting a handful of his Army comrades to aid him, Jackson wages guerilla warfare against some of the toughest hoods in New York City. As if he doesn't have enough to worry about, he also finds himself in a passionate love affair with the beautiful and mysterious dancer known only as Tamara.
When the stakes are life and death, the slightest mistake could spell disaster. If he has any hope of survival, Jackson must decide to follow his head or his heart.

BLACK PEARL by Alvin Grimes is a thriller set in the heyday of Classic Pulp Tales, but delivered with a hard hitting modern voice. Two Fisted, double barreled action at its best- BLACK PEARL by Alvin Grimes From Pro Se Productions.

Skillfully written, brilliantly put together, very exciting story-line. I read the book every spare moment I had and found myself thinking about it when I was not reading it. I even dreamt about it. Hope there will be more to come from this author!
