"The Crown Lord
, besides being a boldly written political thriller, is an important reflection on the genesis of racial animus in America. William Sirls has created a new optic on prejudice and bigotry and their relationship to power, economics, and human ego. Everyone who has unanswered questions and unaddressed concerns about racial equity must read this thrilling novel."
--Louis Gossett Jr.
, Academy Award winner, and author of An Actor and a Gentleman
"This is a book that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and wanting more."
--San Francisco Book Review
"An 'alternate universe' what if novel, The Crown Lord is the kind of dystopian novel that is as thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is engaging and entertaining..."
--Midwest Book Review
"At a time when racial tensions continue to be stoked for political gain, we need books like The Crown Lord
more than ever: to ask hard questions, to encourage reflection, and to remind us of our similarities."
--Seattle Book Review
