The Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library Booktalking group will meet on Thursday, February 21 at 7:00 p.m. We will be reading Down the River Unto the Sea by Walter Mosley. Joe King Oliver, one of the NYPD’s finest, is framed for assault and ends up in solitary at Rikers Island. A decade later, King is a private detective, running his agency with the help of his teenage daughter. When he receives a card in the mail from the woman who admits she was paid to frame him those years ago, King must fight dirty cops and others to protect his clients and himself.
