Annotation David Fuller's debut novel tracks Cassius Howard's road adventures as the runaway slave seeks answers in the murder of Emoline Justice. Emoline was free and was teaching Cassius to read when her life was abruptly and mysteriously cut short. For a carpenter, Cassius is also a pretty good sleuth, and the dangerous trail he's following brings him in contact with a wide world of memorable characters. SWEETSMOKE was nominated for the 2009 Edgar Award for Best First Novel by an American Author.
