New Books by Dave Tevelin

April 4, 1968.  Martin Luther King is dead and so is Brenda Queen, shot on stage at the Howard Theatre, Washington’s soul music showcase, as rioters rage through the capital.  Was it a tragic accident, a calculated crime, or something else?

Siege Of The Capital, the second Jake Katz novel, tracks Hamaas Abdul Khaalis’ takeover of the District Building, the Islamic Center, and the B’nai B’rith in Washington in March 1977, during which one person was killed, several others (including Marion Barry) were wounded, and more than 100 people were held hostage for 39 hours.
