DVD of the Week
This week's Book of the Week is 'Down the River Unto the Sea' by Walter Mosley.

If you have read a Walter Mosley novel before, then you may know what's coming, but you may also not mind. Joe 'King' Oliver is a private eye, once disgraced and incarcerated NYPD investigator convicted of a crime he didn't really commit. Now out and working with his teenage daughter, clues come up that shed light on how he was framed from inside the NYPD. This dark-alley crime story tours the underworld of New York and its myriad denizens with pace and grit.
