Descripción del producto

Johnny Get Your Gun (also known as Death for a Playmate) is the third in the Virgil Tibbs mystery series that began with In the Heat of the Night. In this story, a nine-year-old boy, lonely after a family move, shoots an older child who stole something from him, thus igniting the militant blacks and racist whites of 1960s Pasadena into a black-white conflict involving riots, brutalities, a chase through Disneyland, and a heart-warming as well as heart-breaking scene toward the end of the book that takes place in a baseball park of the California Angles. Here you will find childhood gone awry, racism that ought shock but in context does not (we know it too well), and political conflicts that add fuel to the fire. This is a first rate suspense novel.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

John Ball wrote over thirty novels during his career including mysteries, war novels, adventure stories, but his reputation as a novelist is based on his first work--the 1965, In the Heat of the Night. While under considerable pressure from his publisher to make a change, Ball insisted on keeping the leading character in his novel a black man. Ball made the right decision and the book garnered him much praise for progressive thinking and a keen understanding of racial prejudice. Ball wrote other books that featured the hero of In the Heat of the Night, detective Virgil Tibbs, including The Cool Cottontail(1966), and Johnny Get Your Gun(1969). Later in life, Ball worked as a part-time police offer in Los Angeles and also trained in the martial arts. He died in 1988.

ABOUT THE SERIES

John Ball broke new ground with his book In The Heat of the Night, his 1965 novel that introduced the determined detective Virgil Tibbs. Ball's novel was controversial for it established a black man as a protagonist and Ball refused to change it, despite pressure from the publishing community. Ball would succeed and his book went on to become a film and television series, winning five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor for actor Sidney Poitier. Virgil Tibbs features in other books in the series, using his wits and physical martial arts skills as he successfully fights against crime, racism, and more.

I am at a loss for words to truly describe how exceptional this book is! It truly is well written and this author we as truly a writer who had the foresight to write about how things should be! What a wonderful and great legacy to people of many generations yet to come while still being entertaining! Additionally, it is so refreshing to read such a well written book that doesn't have to use an excessive amount of foul language or explicit sexual encounters within the storyline. I would be very comfortable in allowing my grandchildren to read these books! Excellent work!

A pretty good plot but the characters are disappointingly thin. In his "In the Heat of the Night," the characters were given a little depth and thought, as if they had real lives and could exist outside of the story. The characters here are stock--drawn just enough to make them visible in the story and nothing else. If you're interested in Virgil Tibbs, you'll get nothing here you didn't already know.

The plot is pretty good, but could have easily become a 2-part episode of "Dragnet" without almost no changes. Very disappointing.

This book is not like any ive read before. Its very strange and is very thought provoking. I liked it a lot however. I wouldnt suggest just reading it casually because its meaning is far to deep to skim. I recommend. Enjoy
