"Kiss of Salvation...explores a...serial killer targeting black prostitutes. Homicide detective Joe McGrath...hires African-American private investigator Sam Rucker, against the better wishes of his chief. The two take on a bullying police force...in this sizzling detective novel.
"Kiss of Salvation is a page-turner from the very beginning--it twists in all the right ways and concludes in heart-pounding fashion, when McGrath's unexpected entrance into Birmingham's high society uncovers a seedy underbelly that could hold the key to his mystery."--Charlie Swanson, Bohemian Magazine
From the Back Cover
The Kiss of Salvation takes us back to the beginnings of the Civil Rights movement in 1947 Birmingham. It's a mystery, a history, and an in-depth study of evolving times in the American South. Deftly written and immensely readable, Waights Taylor, Jr. paints a picture of a complex era in American culture. Highly recommended.--Sheldon Siegel, New York Times Best Selling Author of the Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez novels

Set in Birmingham in 1947, he brings us well into the cultural difficulties of the place and time making an interesting an educational backdrop to the story.
The structure is is a classic mystery and Taylor keeps you guessing as he introduces new possibilities and turns in the story. The middle part was a bit slow for my taste, but he picks it up well in the end where the killer is revealed.
A great story. I look forward to reading the others.
