From the publisher

‘This is Mike Phillips’s best novel, brutal and caring, totally authentic’ The Times

Sent from London to New York to bring a dying friend’s message to his daughter, Mary, Sam Dean arrives in Queens, steeped in a mesh of Caribbean and Hispanic culture, looking forward to reconnecting with family and old friends.

But his relaxing holiday turns dark when Mary disappears, and Sammy is caught up in a world of murder, sex, and corrupt politics that threatens to turn his world upside down.

Melded with social commentary around race, class and gentrification, Point of Darkness is a gripping thriller, still eerily relevant.
