Four Black American men living in Paris are charged with the rape of a white woman

Blackwell North Amer
Chester Himes' most disturbing and controversial novel, A Case of Rape has never been widely available to his readers in the United States. That is - until now. Himes, the author of many popular mystery novels and creator of the memorable black detectives, Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, wrote A Case of Rape in 1956-57. This thought-provoking, jarring thriller examines the social and sexual relationships between the races. A white woman is raped and killed by four black American men in Paris. Or is she?
