Under A Cloud
by Eliot Sefrin




Overview -
'Excellently crafted.touching.a pleasure to read. The characters are multi-dimensional. The issues raised are important and timely. Under A Cloud is, simply, very good."
-Marilyn Olsen, president, Public Safety Writers Association

Matt Holland and Rachel Cook, two of the most highly regarded of 'New York's Finest, ' are involved in a fateful shooting that ravages a city, becomes the focus of a landmark civil rights case, and powerfully reshapes the lives of those most closely touched by the incident.

The white officers' accidental and tragic shooting of an innocent black teen in a poverty-stricken Brooklyn neighborhood triggers a bitter racial confrontation, along with lengthy investigations and political maneuverings that threaten to destroy a community, shatter lives and overwhelm the truth.

As the riveting drama unfolds, both the officers and the family of the slain teen become immersed in intense inner crises, as they struggle to come to terms with the tragedy and its impact on their lives. In the process, they come to experience first-hand the stereotypes, hatred and fears that can divide us as a people-and the actions and emotions that can ultimately bond and help us heal.
