Blue's Point by Richard Ferguson is a story with a strong setting and a well-developed racial theme, a thriller that will have the reader’s eyes glued to the pages. Meet ex-convict, journalist Steve Cox, recently released to the custody of old Jim Blue, the man whose family has owned Blue’s Point and the adjacent Freedman’s Town for decades. Mykeisha Ali is a black magazine writer who has just arrived in town on a mission to expose Blue’s Point as a breeding point for racism and violence, a turf for the Klan that would not hesitate to kill black men. Steve is determined to find his father’s killer, but little does he know that he and Mike could be great hindrances to a deadly plan that is underway, and some men will do anything to stop them, including murder.
Blue's Point is a story that powerfully showcases murder investigation, crime, and racism in a thrilling tale that will enthrall readers who are into well-plotted novels with compelling settings. Readers will enjoy the historical elements of the story, the brilliant social and cultural commentaries, and Richard Ferguson’s beautiful prose. The characters are wonderfully developed and the author does an awesome job in exploring their personalities, unveiling their psychological depths, and thrusting them into a conflict that drives the plot ahead. The dialogues feel very natural and readers will enjoy the unique phraseology that seems to be Ferguson’s signature, the descriptions of the plot and characters, and the vivid setting. This is a spellbinding story with a huge conflict and a satisfying end.
