STANDS ALONE – A Mixed Blood cop with the help of her ancestors takes on a white supremacist who starts a race war in Minneapolis.

While investigating multiple killings and attacks on BIPOC, Tanner struggles to understand what is happening in her body when ancestral memories become visceral and the warrior women themselves rise from her body to fight alongside her! In this war, though, Father Raymond’s cruel white ancestors do the same.

With the tone and grit of Karin Slaughter’s crime novels, the necessary and timely exploration of race relations like Attica Locke’s Heaven, My Home, and the history of Blood in the Root: A Racial Cleansing in America by Patrick Phillips, STANDS ALONE tells the story of the arduous plight of women of color over generations fighting racism and murder.

STANDS ALONE is a fast, action thriller at 95,000 words about memory, history, women’s survival and fighting racist evil in Minneapolis. It’s fiction but timely to life today. It’s an epic story spanning time and miles from The Gambia to the United States. It’s a chilling mystery about cellular memory, revenge and healing.
