    *Starred Review* A plane flies in low over Oak Island, North Carolina, in the middle of the night, and after it crashes on the island's one scanty runway, Sheriff Winston Barnes discovers the bullet-riddled body of Rodney Bellamy on the ground nearby. With the wreckage missing both pilot and cargo, everything points to a failed drug heist, except that Rodney, a local Black basketball star and son of a beloved high-school teacher, had no known connection to that world. With his re-election days away, solving Rodney's murder and the mysterious plane crash would go a long way toward guaranteeing Barnes' victory. But his rival, Brandon Frye, a hot-shot land developer with a violent racist streak, capitalizes on the unsolved crime to paint Barnes as an incompetent buffoon. And maybe Barnes is distracted. His wife is dying of cancer, and his married daughter has suddenly returned home after the stillborn death of her first child. Writing with clarity and grace, best-selling Cash (The Last Ballad, 2017) is a gem of a storyteller, combining the solitary journey of a young mother's grief and a community's relentless battle against racial injustice. The result is a tightly crafted whodunit with true depth that readers will simultaneously want to speed through and savor. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
