Promotional Information

The basis for the Oscar-winning film starring Sidney Poitier, John Ball's iconic crime novel is a groundbreaking exploration of racial tension and a gripping, suspense-filled read.

About the Author

John Ball (1911-1988) was born in Schenectady, New York, and grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A part-time police officer in Los Angeles for a time, he wrote more than thirty novels including mysteries, war novels, and adventure stories; his Virgil Tibbs series remains his best-known work. Despite considerable pressure from his editor, Ball insisted on making Tibbs a black man, garnering him praise for progressive thinking and a keen understanding of racial prejudice.
