About the Book
Across 110th Street is a hard-boiled action thriller set in the mean streets of Harlem in the last days of the 1960s. Heroin has a grip on uptown New York and war is breaking out between the law, big-time racketeers and ghetto factions. The book begins with a multiple murder during a mafia payroll hijacking and never lets up in pace.
The novel enjoyed brief fame, later becoming a holy grail item for collectors tracking down rare records and cultural memorabilia. An underground classic that changed hands for over £100, this smart new edition rescues Across 110th Street from obscurity.
