Freelance Black crime photographer Harry Ingram is a Korean War vet in 1963 Los Angeles on the eve of a visit by Martin Luther King, Jr. prior to the March on Washington. Then a long-gone foxhole buddy shows up and dies under mysterious circumstances. Armed with his wits, his camera, and occasionally his service .45, Harry plunges headfirst into the seamier underbelly of L.A. society — tangling with racists, leftists, blackmailers, gangsters, zealots and lovers, all in the hope of finding something resembling justice for his friend.
